Issue found with Create Boundary Layer (inverted airfoil)

Hello,

I have found an issue while I was meshing an inverted airfoil. When I chose the “Create Boundary Layer” option, the “thickness” of that Boundary Layer was not “uniform”. Would you be so kind as to help me? Thanks in advance.

This is what I have obtained:

did you try to attach BL prior meshing anything?
On your first picture we can see an edge (in front of your leading edge) which appears blue (which means meshed)
So your BL has to deal with this meshed edge...

Hi -mAx-

I did not.

I meshed first the edges and then I attached the BL.
