Hi,

how does one enter airfoil corodinate data into cfx-build without having to enter each point in manually and generating a spline to fit the points?

this is getting cumbersone as the coordinate point list for the airfoils are over 100 points!

regards nandu

Hi Nandu,

Load your points into a spreadsheet and add a [ and ] to either end of each point coordinate, then write it out to a file. Open this file in a text editor, select all the points and paste them into the point list box in the create point XYZ form.

Regards, Robin

Well, except that you also need to "CFX-Buildize" the points first. i.e., make sure they have square brackets around each separate point.

I guess I should have read the post more carefully. Duh.

Neale / Robin could you also do this using the PCL language to load the points automatically ? Bob

Yes. There are PCL routines for file I/O.
