Description This model demonstrates the use of blended wing sections, introduced in version 3.11.0. Also demonstrated is the use of conforming components to model the fuel tanks, which automatically deform as their parent component is deformed. Also, sub-surfaces are used to model the control surfaces. This model was roughly inspired by the MIT SAX-40 aircraft.

Hi Michael - very nice model. I took the liberty of using it for a CFD tutorial. Hope you don't mind. André

Good day. I indeed used the video linked to by other Michael to create this model, so all the info should be there. Regards, Michael.
