ESTG file format
 
Hi,

Currently I am trying to import some turbine blade geometry into CCM+ using the turbo wizard, but am having some difficulty in getting the wizard to read the blade geometry.

I have read the file format notes in the user guide, but wondered if there were any tricks I was missing.

As far as I understand, the basics are:
1) txt file format with .estg wildcard
2) file header: NPTS xx
3) section headers: AIRFOIL x
4) x,y,z co-ordinates listed separated by spaces

I have considered that the issue may also be related to the way the inlet / outlet / hub / shroud splines are defined, although as far as I can see there shouldnt be an issue with these.

thanks
