Hello everybody!
I have a problem with Ansys Turbogrid.
I print the hub.curve and the shroud.curve properly, but i cannot understand which coordinate system i have to use to print the right profile.curve (cartesian, cylindrical...). I have a simple extruded compressor blade, and printing the simple cartesian coordinates of the profile I get the trailing edge non attached to the hub and the shroud.

Does someone know something about that?

I usually use Matlab to work on the airfoil profiles, and I was wondering how could I can elaborate the points and print them to txt files, so that Turbogrid can understand them.
For example, the Nasa Rotor 37's points, available in the Ansys's examples, are wrapped on non-plane surfaces, I think they are like cylinders.
