Airplane wing - Lesson 2 - Wing outline does not link

I am trying to create the intersect to the wing profile. After selecting the chord intersect with the front and back of the section profile (having previously used the point feature at each end to select the correct place) after drawing the lines along the wing shape, they end up coming from the Z axis instead of the root wing. Any help appreciated. Rather unhappy that I have stumbled at this point as I am generally finding the Fusion 360 program very intuitive.

Regards,

Michael Kitchen

Hey @ymugmike,

The airfoil should be placed on the main origin. Please watch this video:

Hi,

I have watch both Session 1 and 2 videos. Please identify exactly where you say that the root wing section needs to be moved on to the main origin. I think that I have missed it. All other views show the wing in its normal position slung under the fuselage.

Regards,

Michael Kitchen

Thank you for the video help. I realise now how it makes sense to keep an eye on what is selected.

I am including a screen shot of the completed wing and am preparing for go through the next tutorial.

Regards,

Michael
