Your method is pretty ingenious. Cool of you to share how you make those things.

Cool article. I might try a few hand-shaped wings just for the hell of it. I have an outfit locally that will take my fusion 3D designs and mow them for me. Cheaply. Now if I could just find the time to do them in Fusion. Every time I open the software I realize I've forgotten everything I learned last time.

Pono, please post up some starter wing models.

Iíve got folks who can cut them too down here. Actually using his method you could use a pretty small 3 axis cnc and just flip them.

How about a Fusion360 webinar or zoom series for the CAD-curious zoners? I can hack around but Iíve never put in the time (and had some help) to get proficient at editing wings.
