Wing STL files anyone?

Postby NYKiter » Sat May 27, 2017 9:54 pm

Just got a CNC machine and Fusion 360. Anyone have any MHL scans to share?
I found a Carafino wing...but its the 2012 dinner plate.

I'm a few designs into replicating a few foils I have seen. Do you have a problem with one that isn't MHL? I typically like class A surfacing but nailing the wing tips is challenging. Learning wings has helped me broaden my surfacing.

I would be interested as well for playing around around.
So if someone is willing to share a CAD file of a proven foil design ...

Below is a link to a front wing for a 2015 MHL foil (Rhino CAD format). I machined it out of marine plywood and covered it with a single layer of carbon - plenty stiff. It has about the same plan area as their standard front wing although the span is a few inches less - 19.5". The root chord length is the same but the section shape is thicker - http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/details?airfoil=mh32-il. It rides fine with their standard tail wing.

Hopefully this download link will work:

Here is IGS export from Rhino for the anhedral version. I also added a flat version in the two formats.

I made this set of wings for 3D printing. Never finished the project, so not tested in the water. High aspect. About 600cm2 front wing area.

The wings are printed in sections since I couldn't get the entire thing in the printer at once. The rods are not strong, just good enough to hold it in place to glue.
