Re: Gambit drawing

You can obtain discrete points from the surface equation and import that into gambit as a data file to creat vertices along the surface. Then you can connect the vertices with edges to form a face. In gambit, use File-->Import-->Vertex Data.

Hope this helps.

Re: Gambit drawing

i am also working on Propeller blades. It is good method to follow as per the tutorial given above. But i think if points are not in same plane, i think it is difficult to create the face in gambit.

can you help me in carrying out this.

Thanks in advance aero
