    My limited experience with the student edition is that it is published with a kind of "phase lag" of about half a year (or maybe even a full year) relative to the commercial version. So if I were...

    Hi Jeremy,

    In assemblies try the following unless you have no other choice: Mate to planes and/or faces rather than wire-frame geometry.

    Hi Jeremy,

    This seems to be an unusually strange phenomenon, but I was able to recreate it albeit using (much-more-logical;)) metric units:

    Hi MB107,

    Prop efficiency is inversely proportional to prop diameter. As the saying goes "keep it as long as possible as long as possible". So theoretically the most efficient prop for a given airspeed and...

    Hi Mark, Skydawg.

    Prop design is as much an art as it is a science and it includes no small measure of aesthetics. It is not by chance that there are several very reputable companies that...

    Hi.
    I assume your sketches are splines?
