Dear all,

I'm new with pointwise and I'm doing the meshing of a foil and the mesh is growing inside and outside of the curve shown in the pic 1 and 2. Maybe this is because the growing arrows of the pic 3 didnt apear in my case.

Also how to face the problem with 2 foils like in the pic 4??

You can try to find the answer to your problem in previous threads for instance:

If the airfoil has the same cross section on both sides you can create 2D mesh and then use the path based extrusion.
