Edit Curve Display Options


The Curve Editor includes several options under the Display tab which control how both the curve and background are shown in the plotter. The color, line thickness, point size, and point color are adjustable and background images may be inserted, shifted, and scaled to fit. This makes recreating even highly complex cross-sections quite easy in OpenVSP. Also, under the Curve tab, there is an option to change the plot axes from the default normalized coordinates to absolute coordinates. This scales the axes by the set section height and width and may assist with visualizing the physical size of a custom cross-section.

Unique to the Curve Editor is the ability to zoom and pan the plot area with the middle and right mouse buttons, respectively. This enables users to very finely control each point manually, if desired, and quickly visualize the entire section as needed.
