OpenVSP-Connect - Visualize Your Aircraft Sizing Results with NASA's Vehicle Sketch Pad

Scholz, Dieter; Sousa, Tahir

A 3D visualization is missing for many aircraft preliminary sizing tools. NASA’s Open Vehicle Sketch Pad (OpenVSP) is easy to use, but lacks an interface to input consistent aircraft data. Such an interface has been programmed and is called OpenVSP-Connect. Aircraft are sketched from about 50 parameters. If these are not known to the user, the interface calculates them as good as possible based on simple equations from aircraft design or statistics. Taken this to the extreme, a decent looking aircraft is drawn from as few as two or three input parameters.
