    Aerosketch is made to visualize Rfactor 2 aerodynamics.

    Its calculations are strictly based on s397 spreadsheets obtaining 99.99% accuracy for vertical forces and side forces.
    It features wings, body, diffuser, fenders and effects of ride heights, yaw, wheelbase, undertray locations, ducts, etc,

    This video is a small demonstration for the full 'wing settings' version.

    I attach some images of the 'ride height' version, which is useful to visualize how downforce and drag are changing depending on rear ride height, rake, etc

    Aerosketch is an advanced version of Aerogebra, which it was made in Geogebra, but this software was not efficient when handling big functions. Aerosketch is much faster and updated to latest public spreadsheets available.
    However, I also link these Aerogebra vids to illustrate some features, because the interface was similar. Unfortunately, Youtube deleted annotations which included explanations, i am sorry for that.

    Sorry for slow and clumsy English speaking. I am not very trained on speaking English...

    DiffuserBasePlus()
    DiffuserFrontHeightPlus()
    DiffuserRake()
    DiffuserLimits()
    DiffuserStall()

    The tools have been updated including support for front height visualization and improved balance calculations.
    Also, X axis can be changed to Wing Settings, Rear Height or Front Height mode, so that all tools are merged into one, which is more confortable and saves a lot of time!
    A made this brief video to show some of the new features and give some hints about front height lift parameters.




    Regards!
