Dear all:

I´m trying to optimize a two element airfoil. I do the geometry in CATIA and then I save in STEP format to open with Gambit. I have made an Excel file with some designs but with different measures (the geometry is "the same"). I can import the STEPs to Gambit and then mesh them manually, but I want to automatize it.

The question is: ¿how can I do it? I can do it manually if there are 5 or 6 different designs, but ¿what if they are around 600? ¿Another idea to do it?

Thanks for your answers!

Regards:

-Edu-

I assume you can do that with a journal file, macros and parameters.
See chapters 4.2.3 Parameters / 6.5 Macro Commands from Gambit Help
