Unhappy Airfoil generation issue

Hi, is there anyone ever using Design Modeler to import data points and generate the airfoil for 2D analysis?

The tutorial from Cornel that many people refer to, , has an issue with the airfoil trailing edge.

Even following exactly the steps in the tutorial, I got a "rounded" trailing edge rather than a sharp one after projection, as shown in the attachment.

The curve of the airfoil was generated successfully, but the projected edge smooth the sharp angle at the trailing edge automatically. Anyone experienced this? And any ideas?

I'm pretty sure it will become sharp once imported into the meshing program.
