 Introduced in OpenVSP v3.11.0, Wing blending works by giving the user enhanced control over the leading and/or trailing edges of a wing section. Instead of a straight line, the LE/TE can become a smoothly varying curve. Through sufficient application of magic, the rest of the airfoil follows along. Introduced in OpenVSP v3.11.0, Wing blending works by giving the user enhanced control over the leading and/or trailing edges of a wing section.

-Blended wing controls are available on the Blend tab of the wing geometry GUI. At the top of the tab under "Blend Airfoil",​ a wing airfoil selector is available. Below, the tab is divided into two sections horizontally:​ Leading Edge and Trailing Edge, and two sections vertically: Inboard and Outboard. Each of the four sections lists a drop-down labeled "​Match",​ along with controls for sweep, dihedral, and strength. "​Match"​ is used to constrain the planform curve to desired values, summarized below:+Blended wing controls are available on the Blending ​tab of the wing geometry GUI.
