Default periodic mesh creation in pro-star

I am using pro-star v 3.26 and I have a airfoil model. I am using pro-surf to create the surface mesh and then run pro-am to create the volume and subsurface. Since this is a airfoil it would be nice if it is periodic(cyclic). I haven't found an option in prosurf that will make it a periodic mesh. Can pro-star create a periodic mesh?

Making a periodic mesh requires duplicating an existing mesh. For that you can use the Prostar command cgen (cell generate). The vgen/vrefl options and coordinate system type (cartesian, cylindrical, etc) provides much flexibility.
