Hello everybody,

first Im sorry for my less experience. Im a starter in CFD and also with OpenFoam.

I have problems to meshing the trailingedge of an airfoil. Refinement and playing with the slipAngel do not work satisfactorily. Now I want to go to the FeatureEdges to solve the problem.

I created the airfoil by myself with Catia so I have the possibility to save the FeatureEdges for Snappy perfect and much better then creating them automaticly with surfaceFeatureExtract.

I tried to save the Splines as .obj with Autodesk Inventor and SolidWorks both didnt work because a .obj file must be a body/solid and not only lines.

Does anyone have an idea how I can tackle this problem?

Thanks to everybody
