After receiving advice from Ryan on wing attachment, Maya re-CADed the fuselage for a square wing attachment top, where the wing attachment would sit on the fuselage. This is contrary to the previous design where the wing attachment would meet the fuselage on two points. This broke a lot of the fuselage, which taught us to use variables more often.
