avidash is on a distinguished road
I am trying to generate scroll wrap. For this I am exporting the co-ordinates from a text file(Scroll1.txt). After I generate the curve it looks like "scroll1aa.jpg" and "scroll1bb.jpg". I dont understand why the arrow is out of plane.
Then when I try to generate the surface through following steps:
concept->surface from egde
I am not able to select the curve and hence not able to generate the surface.

Any idea whats wrong !!??

I have followed the above procedures from the link below (where airfoil is created from it co-ordinates) to generate my scroll wrap :
