Direct STL export

Exporting STL files got easier. There is no need to browse to the STL export page anymore. STL files can now be exported directly from the desktop app.

Outline and profiles export

Have you ever wanted to reuse your perfectly designed foil profile in another fin? That’s now possible with the all the extra export & import options.

Continuous curves

Right clicking on a pathpoint allows you to force continuity in that point. This makes it easy to achieve nice continuous profiles.

Minimum thickness

You might have noticed this feature in the online editor. But now it’s also available in the desktop app! This feature allows you to design a perfect foil profile with a very sharp trailing edge, while making sure that the 3D version never get’s thinner than this measure.
