Autodesk, Inc.
Generate sketch profiles for NACA airfoils in Autodesk® Fusion™

General Usage Instructions

Generate sketch profiles for NACA airfoils in Fusion.

After installing the app, relaunch Fusion. 

  1. Select the Airfoil option from the SKETCH panel.
  2. Specify the NACA number for a 4 or 5 series airfoil.
  3. Specify the number of points per side. Total points will be 2*numPoints+1. 
  4. Selecting half cosine spacing will result in finer discretization near the leading edge of the airfoil compared to the default constant spacing. 
  5. Selecting finite thickness will apply a finite thickness at the trailing edge compared to the default zero thickness.
  6. Clicking OK generates the airfoil profile.
  7. Scale, extrude, etc. in the modeling environment. 





The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store has already installed the app/plug-in.
