Fuselage Caps


Fuselage components may be closed at the nose or tail by leveraging end caps when the first or last cross-section is chosen to be open e.g., not a point or line. The user has access to several cap types including None, Flat, Round, Edge, and Sharp. If an open cross-section is chosen for an end section, applying caps ensures that the geometry is “watertight” and ready for analyses or tools that rely on solid geometries rather than surfaces. This tutorial demonstrates how to apply caps to a Fuselage component and how to adjust the cap tessellation.
