I was wondering if there was any way to import or create a NACA 2412 airfoil. I have already found and created the 4415 airfoil from the tutorial.
Caedium can read in points (.pts, File->Import) as vertices (geometry) and groups for easy spline fitting. For an extensive airfoils definition database try:
To create an airfoil volume, the process is:
1. In trying to create a 3d air-foil of the Naca-4415, with the tutorial guidance, caedium is erroneously making the air-foil too big, and by that I mean giving it a chord length of 1000m which I suppose is meant to be 1m..I have tried everything to correct this but failed, everything after that is pointless as it will give back dubious wakes and values. How can I fix this?
2. How do I create/import other air-foils? Most of the airfoils are in .dat formats but caedium only reads .pts as imports. How can I get past this or do the necessary conversions in order to create other 3d air-foils??
