In this PART 2 we continue studying the concept of 3D-shaping, started here: PART 1: Notes on the 3D formation of the leading edge in a paraglider, using ripstop fabric.
This document shows the details and the strategy used in the
programming of the module 3D-shaping of Laboratori d'envol. We come
back to review the basics, and we propose one method in particular.
Now, we just have to move these ideas to a few lines of Fortran code,
and integrate the code within the next version of the program
LEparagliding. The work is simple. Only it is necessary to define
correctly the data, and then the logic becomes trivial. Only the part
corresponding to drawing the different parts separated, sorted and
marked, will require a detailed and hard work.
To use the program LEparagliding is not necessary to study all these
ideas... (!), these are directed only to the researchers of the details
and the concepts used inside the program. To use the program you only
need to know the meaning of some parameters that we will explain latter
in the manual.
The drawings are self explanatory (this is the intention!):
