Hello everybody,
In Open Rocket software, there are some data that appear in main screen (apogee, max. velocity and max. acceleration in the lower left corner; Estability, CG and CP in the upper right corner).
I would like to know if it is possible to make more data appear in this section.
I've tried to explore Open Rocket tools, but I couldn't find something of a kind.
If it isn't possible by using the software menu, and it's possible only by modifying the JAVA file, I would appreciate if someone told me what to do.
As an example, I'm saying about data like the materials, the wall thickness, the max. landing etc.
Thanks

The extra simulation data is available either on the individual flight profile plots or on the project design and simulation summary PDF. I’m not aware of any method for displaying extra data on the main screen. You might be able to create an addon that does what you want. Others might have a more informed answer for you.

I think the word you are looking for is QUESTION not DOUBT. At least it seems that way from your usage of DOUBT in other posts. A question is like the spanish pregunta.

Since materials and wall thickness can be different for each component, exactly what would you be expecting to see? Not sure how you summarize information like that in a clean way.

I would like to see some data like: velocity when hiting the ground, max. landing (in oblique throw), a list of materials and thicknesses next to the components etc

Ground-hit velocity is on the simulations page as you're aware. Putting it on the design page would make the display cluttered. Especially adding a Bill of Materials would crowd the interface too

It'd be helpfull to receive some extra data in such a fast way, but ok if it's impossible :(

I could imagine making the summary data in the panel configurable in a future release... adding the various dimensions or a BOM seems really unlikely, though.
