    so i installed it so then do I need to hunt for it to use the features?

    Did you find a way to use it?

  • Good but ..

    same remarks as others and more,

    Seems ok for 4 digits but not for 5 digits profiles

    NACA 65018 is not correct for example, but we must thank the author for this aniways

  • Quite OK

    It does the job but lacks a few options to deserve 5 stars.

    - It always creates the sketch in the top level component, no matter which other component is active.

    - Like others already mentionned, it would be better to output a spline rather than a series of lines segments. Although a spline might create some interpolation in regard to the original airfoil profile.

     - Finally, and this is the most irritating, you cannot select a plane to output the airfoil sketch. The plugin will stubbornely draw on the top plane, even if you selected another construction plane or are currently sketching in another plane.

    Hello, What did you do to join the points? spline between points?

  • Great plug-in

    It just needs to create a spline like others say. only then will it be true 5 Star.

  • Usable Airfoil Generator

    I would pay for a NACA-6 version...

  • Easy to use but missing an important feature

    Very useful and much easier than cleaning up a NACA airfoil form airfoiltools. However, I would really like to have the ability to set the chord length as this would be more convenient than scaling the sketch.

  • great plugin

    This is really useful, but will be better if it create spline.

  • Super Helpful

    This plugin is superior. Please try to have it create a spline instead of lines in future updates, that way the airfoil would be much more smoother.

  • Loaded ok and easy to use.

    Using this app is easier than downloading a NACA airfoil file cleaning up, then converting to csv and then importing as per the File/Script/Spline tool in Fusion. I think it worked pretty well. Now just got improve my Fusion skills to create a fan with NACA blades
