hi..buddies

I am having problem to connect points in design modeler to form up airfoil profile.

There are 200 points in total and i feel that connecting the points by 'line' manually is not proper way to create airfoil profile.

Are there any better and smarter method to connect all points?

I have attached my model for better perception.

pls help suggest.

Try putting a spline through the points.

I must admit that I do my airfoil work in Solidworks where you get much better control over the shape.
