0:36 At the beginning you seem to manually draw out the wing profile. In Fusion 360 and Onshape, there are addons that will automatically draw them out for you. In Fusion the addon is called "Airfoil Generator". The Onshape one is created by Darren Lynch

for his use he doesnt actually need individual ribs just enough "meat" inside to keep them stiff and not let them fold up .... I was hoping before he lightened the wing with the holes he would have done a quick stress analysis and then just cut out the low stress sections and leave the high stress ones ... . yes this is a small plane and model ... BUT ... if he does the stress test ... he then can not only build the small model but make it a true plane and not have to worry about the wings smacking him in the head as they fold up in flight

Huge thanks for sharing your time and knowledge so clearly. I have an Eclipson RC plane and always wondered how they designed the lightweight structure with very little stringing and I think you have solved the mystery for me!! Having followed your really excellent guidance with Fusion I managed to produced a 200mm test piece with excellent results. Instead of slicing the ribs at the mid point, I used offset to slice 0.8mm from the top of the ribs just under the surface of the top wing skin, that way the top surface of the wing prints perfectly and the "joins" for the 2 layers are on the under surface. Using PRUSA slicer settings from LW PLA, similar to those from 3DLabprint the results are very clean fast light weight prints (not using spiral mode). If you optimise the gap, and print settings the ribs connect nicely to the top skin as material foams... brilliant. Would echo some comments about Airfoil generator but thats not the point of your video. Next project (after the light weight "test" glider") with my 11year old son is to replicate his Balsa/Monocote RC Fokker DR1 in LW PLA. Tom, your videos are always informative... my son is always watching and says wants to become an engineer one day...so you are also inspiring the next generation... many thanks for the great content!

I use TurboCad and therefore had to adapt your Fusion 360 method accordingly to achieve the same model results, but it was very much worth the effort. The model prints just as you describe, brilliant. I can see why it took you three weeks to work the process out, and even now I struggle with the logic to work in the "negative" to achieve the correct "positive" print result with Surface printing. Also avoiding double (overprinting) print lines and stop/start printing. "simple when you know". Thank you

I think there's a bit to be done in terms of optimizing your CAD workflow and making it more amenable for parameterization but this is a really exciting design. Looking forwards to playing around with this! I wonder how much of a pain it would be to have varying aerofoil profiles over the length of the wing, and to consider how chunks of wing can include tabs/slots to help them mate together. Brilliant work as always, Tom.

Hey Tom, so to make your life a little easier, there is LW PLA by Polymaker. It is different from the foaming stuff by colorfabb or eSun as it is basically "pre-foamed" . It has very low density and prints like regular PLA. It maybe a touch heavier than foaming stuff, but for your new project where you teased even a canopy/nose with similar structure to the wing, it maybe easier to work with. And it is cheaper than every foaming pla i could find (at least where I live)

Hi Tim. Although your rib-slicing technique seems a good idea to get a smooth surface, for the size of wing and low speed of the vehicle you're talking about, and the resulting small Re-Number, it would actually be overall much better to leave the ribs whole so they form a proper, continuous torsion box between top and bottom skin, and accept the small imperfections on the surface. In many slicers these days you can define the seam location on the perimeter and this would have been a much better way of avoiding having them in the wrong places. As soon as they're behind the transition to turbulent flow all is well and you wouldn't notice any difference. Your wing will be *much* stronger, and thus potentially lighter, then with the sliced ribs. Also, next time have a look at using NURBS curves rather than arc segments in the initial sketch. This way you have much better control over the geometry, and avoid the curvature discontinuity between the constant curvature arc segments. Other than that good content with great tips for beginning wing designers.

13:45 To make tiny cut gaps fuse better In PrusaSlicer there is a settings called "Slice gap closing radius: 0.049mm" it mean that it closes gaps smaller than 0.049mm which limits how small gaps you can make. In your design you use 0.1mm gaps which could be smaller if you decreased "gap closing radius" to maybe 0.005mm (don't remember might go even lower).

I call this the "continuous path vase mode hack". You see it around, but it is quite rare. I'm not into planes, but I've used this method when the design time is justified and I want to print many multiples of something that prints fast and is strong. Shelf brackets, table legs, rugged custom containers, etc. Have you thought of using a belt printer? The 45 degree print geometry lets you print fully-enclosed shapes in vase mode (all 6 sides of a cube, for example). The ability to print long wings in one piece might be useful. I notice that your ribs are basically 2 perimeters pressed together flat like a ribbon. Have you considered separating those 2 lines to create a tubular structure and (maybe) more rigidity?

Quick question/tip regarding your rectangles while doing sketches: Is there any reason you don't use points that are constrained to the midpoint of the edges of the rectangle at 13:16 and then just use a horizontal/vertical constraint to keep the center's align vs two dimensions? That way, it dynamically stays centered regardless of the width of the rectangle. It doesn't really change much, just curious if there's an actual reason not to do it or if it's just not worth the work. Thanks!

I actually experimented with LW-PLA and simply making the extruded wing profile a solid object, but made a hole for wing spar etc, and then just used 1 perimeter for the shell, and used "cubic" infill in PrusaSlicer. When you set the infill to 1 to 3%, it creates something very similar to the spar structure you modelled - and the spar hole automatically created a box inside the wing, and the cubic infill, while not as nice as a precisely designed one, still was doing a pretty good job with minimal effort, and the wing was remarkably light.

As an old RC plane guy- balsa with plastic heat shrink covering. Extremely light and strong. Also durable as long as you don’t crash it. All the 3d printed and foam built stuff I see are all extremely heavy with poor structural strength. I feel like the opportunity to mix 3d printed traditional rib structure with traditional style build. Carbon spars, 3d printed ribs, carbon leading edge spar, trailing edge, could even use balsa sheeting on the front section of the foil/wing in a traditional manner. Cover with monokote or similar. You get a incredibly strong and light wing👍. I feel like it would be possible to shed nearly 1/2 the structural weight of some of the best 100% printed wings I have seen while having far higher structural strength. Granted this adds traditional assembly back into the mix but the results of mixing the best of all the materials has high potential for some incredible weight to strength possibilities. All translating to superior flight characteristics, flight time, durability ie air frame life etc. I would fly my old school balsa gas planes for 2-3 yrs nearly every weekend before the vibration from the engine started to cause structural failure in the tail section. Classic failure of an old RC plane with lots of flight hours was the loss of a horizontal flight control on the tail due to structural failure.

2:46 [Edited because I realized what you were doing. My first suggestion is still good advice for an instance like 6:19 .]Just so you know, you can "offset" lines using the O key and it basically does this automatically. Though, it will be an offset which would mean that the lines would be moved upward or downward depending on which way the copy goes. To get around this, I normally make a line then offset on both sides of the original line. Then make the original line a construction line. Edit: Actually in this situation I would've done a rectangular pattern

I think you may get better strength-to-weight if you make the circular cut-outs parallel to the ribs instead of parallel to the spar. And then they do unfortunately need to be tapered, so you might want to add the circular cutouts individually to a single rib before you replicate it.

Nice job ! By offseting the extrados of the ribs by 0.5mm right before the "Combine" feature, I obtain a clean extrados. By that I mean that the extruder draws the extrados in one smooth line and on the intrados, it draws the ribs and supports. This helps for the aerodynamics because the extrados is smoother.

Had a thought, not that it matters for light load usage such as RC. Could be used as a good demonstration of structures. You could aeroelastically tailor the wing by slight variations in rib angles and numbers. I like the nature behind aeroelastic tailoring because of the X-29's forward sweep where aeroelastic divergence was an issue and composite tailoring mitigated this. You could do the same here.

Great video, but I have to ask.. why the lines outside of the wing spar? Wouldn't a circular hole for a carbon fibre rod be sufficient?

@Tim, I have a very similar design in SolidWorks but after slicing the part in PrusaSlicer it removes and breaks up the internal ribs. Your design in Fusion360 seems to work. Is this software compatibility issue between Solidworks and Prusa?

Have you tried over extruding, to see if the wing has better adhesion between the vase mode lines? I'm just wondering how the seam down the entire length of the wing will effect the rigidity of the wing.

I suspect that the foaming of the light weight PLA is doing the work of over extrusion.

This is a video I'm going to save in my favorites so that when youtube makes Portuguese dubbing available, I can watch it.

the most ingenious idea is crisscrossing the ribs to make it possible to 3D print the entire wing as a single continuous path. I think this design probably make the wing so much stronger. Have you tested strength versus weight difference between the conventional wing construction and your design? My gut feel is that if you can 3D print the entire wing in a single print, you may not even need a central spar to transfer lift and weight of the plane.
