I have an full-scale airplane design that I would like to create from scratch on solidworks. I have seen many videos such as this: Lofts and Airplanes in Solidworks - YouTube
where the aircraft is generated by eyeballing the placement of the spline curves and matching it with the design pictures. This does not seem to be a good way of generating an accurate surfaces that can then be prototyped and machined. Is there a better way to design an aircraft in solidworks? I would imagine that there is a better way go about this for a real aircraft that is intended to be CAD-designed and then built. Perhaps some aerospace engineers have some experience with this?
