NEW for 2023!!! New Features
The best in dedicated Keel and Rudder Design software has just taken a huge leap in capabilities and features. Our venerable WINGS 32 has been replaced with WINGS 10, newly optimized for WINDOWS 10 and all new operating Systems.
WINGS 10 R1.9 New Features include:
- 3D Lift and Drag Calculations using NACA / NASA / Custom Foil Lift / Drag / Stall Characteristics over 5 Reynolds Numbers
- Performance Data Included for all WINGS Native FOIL sections (NACA / NASA / Custom)
- Realistic Rendering using WIN 10 Native Tools Within WINGS 10
- Export STL Files for 3D Model Printing, Realistic Rendering in Rhino 3D and other 3D CAD tools
- Design Rudder Stocks using built in Materials Library per 2021 ABS Rules!
- Use Vertical or Swept Stocks
- Add your own materials to the Materials Library
- Calculate required keel bolts Diameters from a built in Materials Library
- WINGS 10 Automatically generates a proposed Keel Bolt Placement Pattern,Number of bolts, proposed Depths, Proposed Diameter
- Export Keel Bolt and Rudder Stock calculations in PDF or TEXT files
- Substantially improved screen drawing- very fine details and much smoother line drawings at resolutions up to 4K
- New separate Keel and Rudder Design Dialogs Optimized for each function
- Now Open a Keel or Rudder Design and automatically select Keel Bolts or Rudder Stock Calculations according to the design type.
- New WINGS 10 File type (*.W10) now stores data for Keel and Rudder specifics such as Stock Diameter, Material Type or Keel Bolt locations, depths and Diameters
- WINGS 10 Automatically determines if a Keel bolt location or depth will come too close to the outer edge of the Keel Sheel and determine the maximum depth allowed for a given bolt diameter and location.
- Many more features, bug fixes and overall operating improvements too numerous to mention!
WINGS 10 is a powerful keel and rudder design tool that is capable of creating virtually any shape keel or rudder. WINGS 10 is based on the powerful editing and display functions used in PROLINES versions! WINGS 10 incorporates the latest in Vacanti Yacht Design AUTOMATED “Parametric Design” tools. Click FILE, NEW, enter desired dimensions, add AUTOMATIC BULB and /or MOUNTING FLANGE and WINGS 10 generates a perfect keel or rudder instantly with your preselected foils.
In particular, WINGS 10 is capable of creating bulbed keels made up of up to 50 foils, placed anywhere on the keel or Rudder Span! WINGS provides a NURB SURFACE that is used to define the keel or rudder. The surface maybe made up of curves or sharp breaks as desired. Thickness distribution along the Keel or Rudder is defined in the Front or Body view of the planform. The designer can set thickness for each foil used. The original DOS WINGS has been used extensively throughout the world and has proven itself as a race winner at the grand prix level.
NACA, NASA and Proprietary Foils Designed in FOIL. Create virtually any shape keel or rudder
NURB Spline SURFACE NURB Surface to define both the outer edge and thickness
Nouse Controlled Position Points
Quick Creation of a General Keel/Rudder to give more time to fine tune
Hydrodynamic and Ballast Calculations
Wetted Surface and frontal area (cause drag) calculations
Projected Area, Center of Volume, and Center of Gravity Calculations
Rudder Weight Calculation
Hydrodynamic and ballast calculation print feature
CNC NURB SURFACE Export for High Accuracy Machining
The same easy point, click and drag features are also used to modify the thickness in Front View. WINGS provides extensive calculations for wetted area, frontal area, aspect ratio, wetted surface, projected surface, center of gravity, center of volume or bouyancy and center of area and plot them graphically. Multiple ballast values of any density may be used to compute over all weight.
