LD-Haack, is commonly referred to as the Von Kármán or the Von Kármán Ogive.

The Ogive shape is for tangent ogives. I use Bezier for secant ogives.

Nose cone design has been a good reference for this program.

Thank you, Carl! The term "Haack" was nibbling at my mind, but I couldn't remember why.

As a golfer I am fundamentally opposed to using anything called Haack . . . .

But seriously,

Carl,

1) I am getting an image of what I'm making by using the refresh button,
2) When I save it, where does it go ?
3) how do I get it back?
4) how do I designate it for payment and cutting? ( as opposed to a purely academic exercise).

Thanks for this feature; I hope you get smothered with kissees from your favorite Jessica (Simpson, Beil, Alba, Walter, Tandy, whatever)

It stores under your SAM# as Owner. To get it back, type the Cat Num and your SAM#.

Email me to get it cut. I am still trying to figure out how to add that feature!

I did spend two days trying to use SVG to output it for Safari and others. VML works for IE only. I played with Rafael which seems to work with both, sometimes. ARGH....

Perhaps I'm being overly simplistic, but can't you just generate PNG or JPG?

Google Chrome doesn't show any kind of picture, either. (heavy sigh)

FYI,

Do you know of a program to convert vector to png? I have tried several with no success. That would be ideal!

If you're talking about SVG, Corel DRAW is doing it for me, and Inkscape will Save As a PNG. I'm 'exporting' from Corel Draw as a PNG without a whimper from it.

I know we're talking about the web interface here, but Inkscape is an OpenSource program hosted on Sourceforge.
