 Variable presets is an OpenVSP feature that allows for a user to quickly and easily switch between different geometric configurations. This is accomplished by maintaining and applying sets of parameters for a model. One such use case is with a basic commercial jetliner: while the fuselage, wing, and tail dimensions of a Boeing 737-800 differ from those of a 777-300, the essential layout remains the same. With the ability to save the values of  fuselage diameter and length, wingspan, chord, etc. to a group labeled "​737-800",​ and a set of different values to "​777-300"​ one could model a single tube-and-wing design and use the saved parameter settings to switch between specific configurations. The ability to save sets of parameter values could also permit a "​Flight"​ set for in-flight geometry rotations and "​Stowed"​ set for stowed geometry rotations, drastically simplifying the process of changing the model'​s condition. ​ Variable presets is an OpenVSP feature that allows for a user to quickly and easily switch between different geometric configurations.
