I’d like to introduce WingHopper.com to the Foil.Zone community! WingHopper is a parametric wing design web app that allows anyone to create a beautiful, efficient, and accurate wing model.
Initially I developed WingHopper for my naval architecture and hydrofoil design consulting, using it as the basis of the hydrofoil design work I undertake. I’ve made into a web app that allows for anyone to design a beautiful wing that can be exported to 3DM, STL, OBJ, or STEP file formats. I’ve also incorporated an XML export that can be imported by XFLR5, a great open-source panel code CFD program. The goal of all of this is to provide a useful and powerful design tool to the sailing + foiling communities in order to gain knowledge and develop technology to move our industry forward.
I’ve just launched the website and there are a lot of upgrades + improvements to make over the next few months. I’d appreciate any feedback on the site, and definitely want to hear from you if you find it useful!
The site and tool is completely free to use, just make a free account and start designing. Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions. Happy foiling!
