dale154 is on a distinguished road
Hello, I'm meshing some propeller blades, geometry is generated from curves and points. When viewing from a certain angle, the curves seem wavy/oscillate from points (See attached image 1), I've tried using more/less points to describe the aerofoil. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what this is or if it is just a viewing issue. when viewed from other angles the curves look fine (attached image 2).

Many thanks,

Hi Dale,

it might not be a solution to your problem, however, triangulation tolerance in the "model/units" settings. Decrease it to a very small value.

with regards,
