Features

Rhino Rotorblade is a Python-bases extension for the commercial CAD-program Rhinoceros. This plug-in allows the generation of cross-section profiles for NACA airfoils. Furthermore, it allows the easy and user friendly assembly of cross-sections to form wings and rotors in form of surface CAD-models.

Key features of this software are:

  • NACA airfoil shape profile interpolation curves currently for 4 and 5-Digit NACA series
  • NACA database for commonly used airfoil series
  • Extendibility of NACA profile generator due to object-oriented programming
  • Assembly of airfoil shapes profile curves to form entire wing models
  • Templates for wing shapes concerning thickness and chord length
  • Easy placement of airfoil shapes and wing models in space
  • Samples for all features and their usage

The code is developed, maintained and extended in form of a standalone development environment using Visual-Studio IDE, but might be also used with any other suitable environment. The usage requires a working version of the commercial CAD tool Rhinoceros of version 5.0 or higher.

Feel free to use or extend this free software.
