Importing OpenVSP v2 Models


Heritage OpenVSP v2 models may be imported from the Import… menu. In most cases, the translation from OpenVSP v2 components to their OpenVSP 3 counterparts is very straightforward and has been automated as much as possible. For example, version 2 parameters defining a Wing will be directly applied to the matching parameters in version 3. A similar process occurs for fuselages cross-sections and skinning parameters. However, some VSP2 parameters or methods do not exist in VSP3 models or components and may require some manual iteration to match the design exactly. In such cases, it is recommended that the VSP2 model is imported along with a mesh from OpenVSP v2 to provide a guide for any required corrections.
