Hi everyone

I have an airfoil naca 0015 extruded in solidworks. its been tested in a wind tunnel for ground effect and now i want to simulate it in fluent and compare results. i am really a newbi, could anyone tell me a bit more about the type of meshing i need to simulate the wind tunnel. the wing has been tested in 3d so ill have to mesh in 3d right or 2d ? Do i have to mesh in 2d first and extrude in 3d??I am still in doubt whether to use gambit or ICEM cfd to mesh....any suggestions would really help me

thank you
