HI All.
I'm actually trying to model a 3-D structure of a blade of an axial flow fan. I'm importing the NACA airfoils into GAMBIT,I can join all these points using a wireframe structure but I can't create a closed volume out of the faces, simply because all the airfoils have different cambers.
Please help me out. I need to create a solid volume out of 2 different NACA airfoils.
