I've been trying to mesh an airfoil in ICEM and I've been struggling with the geometry.

I imported point data and drew a spline for the top and bottom surfaces. The spline came out all wavy and gave me some very funny Fluent results.

Whats a better way to import airfoil geometry into ICEM?

Just to answer this for future me:

The spline tool in ICEM uses a b-spline tool. A better way to import airfoils is to use the design modeller tools to generate airfoil splines from excel data. Then export as a parasolid and read the parasolid into ICEM.
