Model Export Introduction


An OpenVSP model may be exported in a wide variety of formats including triangulated meshes, rectilinear wireframes, standardized CAD, vector drawings, blade element, and airfoils, among others. Each of these file types will require their own options and model setup to achieve a quality export which will be discussed in subsequent topics along with reasonable best-practices. The Export menu is located in the File menu. Similar to Comp Geom, users may select different components for the Normal (thick-surface) set and the Degen (thin, camber surface) set.
