hi to all
I am going to model a wind turbine with naca0012 for the blade in gambit.but i have no idea how to do it.I'm new to gambit and fluent.is any one to help me and give me idea to start modeling it in gambit?
please help.
thanks

I think the first thing is to get coordinates of your naca profil.
Then you can import date and create one blade.
Finally with rotation, you may have something correct (2d)

thanks for your help.I have the corrdinates of the airfoil naca 0012 and I have modeled it in gambit but i don't know what to do as next step,for modeling the hole blade.in fact I don't have data of other parameters such as lenght of blade,etc.
this picture is the modeling of the blade.

I would appreciate you if you could help me.

now select all the edges for generating the blade surface (as solid) >> create surface wireframe.
Once it is done you can manipulate the surface and rotate it
