New Content in Production

We are working through the challenges of the current environment to bring new content to the site.  Additional fundamentals will be added soon that cover other component behavior and use.

The next available content will be a full walkthrough of building a VSP model based on an existing aircraft.  All of the tips and tricks that you will need to get started will be covered in these tutorials.

We hope that you are all enjoying the content!  Feel free to reach out with any questions either directly via the page contact information or the OpenVSP Google Group.

OpenVSP Ground School is Live!

The Open Vehicle Sketch Pad online training program is now available!

This early release is intended to provide basic instruction to users of all experience levels but will be most useful for those new to OpenVSP.  The content within this site will be growing significantly over the next several months so I hope that you follow along and learn the many uses of this powerful design tool.

A tentative content map will be provided soon showing the expected breakdown of topics by Chapter > Subject > and Topic.  As the site grows, we will be adding summaries of the video content to each page along with procedures as appropriate to help you follow along.  A comprehensive walkthrough for modeling a representative aircraft will be posted soon!

Many in the user community have asked for a learning resource like this so we are striving to make it the best that we can.  Expect changes as we grow into this new framework and bear with us as we find the bugs.

We are very excited about this program and hope that you can use the tutorials to not only learn OpenVSP basics but to keep it as a library of knowledge along with the existing OpenVSP resources.  We hope you enjoy the videos!
