Is there any way to remove the concave part of this model both cross-sections are at the same width and i turned off skinning to allow a linear taper? any help would be appreciated!!

Can you post the *.vsp3 file?

It looks like you've messed with the paramater speed.  Are these rounded rectangles (the key corner button should be selected the same universally) or are they CEDIT cross sections (did you play with the parameter speed?)

In the photo it was a rounded rectangle transitioning to a CEDIT composite cross-section with a rectangle and semi-circle on top. I changed the rounded rectangle to a super ellipse with similar properties and it is still there. I am not sure on what the parameter speed is exactly checking the forum is it the variable "U" ? any advice is appreciated thank you Rob!!!

The OpenVSP Ground School site has a tutorial on this. If this doesn't help to understand the problem, please let me know so I can update the content.
