Hi,

I would like to be able to split the edges of the airfoil as shown in the picture attached, but without having to make that line projection which mess up the mesh, is there a way to do it then create a named section for it for the upper and lower surface ?

Thank you !

you can select ''merge'' in DesignModeler.Thus, all edges will be removed. Dont forget that when you click merge, boundary merge zone should be ''yes''

You can split the edge in meshing application using virtual edge split. You don't need to split it in DM. This what you will need to do:

Once in meshing application:
1. Click on the Model object. In the toolbar you click the Virtual Topology button.
2. Select the edge which you want to split. In the toolbar select the option "Split edge at"

You can also change the ratio of edge split by holding down F4 button and selecting the vertex splitting the original edge and then slide it along the edge using left mouse button click.

Hope this helps you. Good luck.

Thanks a lot, haven't tried this one, but it is possible to do it in DM as well , just by going to concept>Split edge .
