Description

Very simple to use, an existing construction line on a sketch need to be selected, then the file from which to generate the airfoil is selected. You can choose to have the airfoil name added as text on the sketch.

Features:

  • Use existing sketch line as chord reference for the profile. Can be of any length, at any angle with horizontal.
  • Accept CSV files, with either comma or semi-colon as delimiter.
  • Accept DAT files, either in the Selig format, or the less common Lednicer format
  • For Dat files, the name of the Airfoil can be added to the sketch, if desired.

  • Great airfoil add-in for Fusion
    Jeff Thier | February 18, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    If you need to import airfoil data to your Fusion design, this is the tool to use!
    As intended, this add-in reads and imports any properly formatted airfoil DAT files as a spline to your sketch; Which is much more elegant and convenient than a series of lines segments.
    The second great thing is that, it scales and aligns the airfoil to the selected construction line during the import. Which means that the airfoil comes at the right dimension and with the right angle (provided you selected a properly dimensioned construction line).
    The only cons, is that as others mentionned, the airfoil is sometimes drawn inverted. (I guess it has something to do with the coordinates system when parsing). It takes no time to fix the sketch by mirroring the profile around the construction line. Maybe this can be fixed in a future version


  • Promising features, wish it would work with my .dats
    Harper Abbot | February 13, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Generates a flawed spline (contains curvature errors, etc) and seems to have chosen only a few of the points contained in the airfoil .dat files.  The files work with the other Fusion airfoil plugin.

    Could you give me a link where I could download your .dat files? Which one of the different standards are they following?


  • Very good tool
    Holger Weychardt | February 08, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Simple and efficient. But same problem as Fabien. Sometimes the direction is not correct and I have no clue how to flip it.


  • Great tool
    Ziga Bozic | February 02, 2019 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Works great, simple and efficient.

    Thanks!


  • Very useful, but I have this nasty bug with V1.0
    Fabien Gagné | December 30, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    We can't specify the direction of the airfoil. Sometimes it is right, other times the plugin is stubbornly stuck reversed, with the leading edge pointing aft :(

    Please add a checkbox option to reverse the direction.

    Here's a video that shows the bug https://youtu.be/DjMTnINHLK4" target="_blank">https://youtu.be/DjMTnINHLK4

    A simple miror will help, here.... Now, I agree it would be better if it was always consistent. Once I have some free time, I may look to make a version 2 with this corrected.


  • Very good job
    eric lemasson | September 23, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Just work as promised. Needed to reinstall/repair it after F360 update...


  • Simple and great
    Greger Olofsson | July 22, 2018 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This plugin does what it's supposed to and does it well!

    Trés bien!


  • Best airfoil addin for Fusion 360
    Bernard Grosperrin | June 30, 2018

    Clearly, ability to draw an airfoil on an existing sketch, first selecting the cord, allow to make a very precise wing, with proper angles where needed. 

    A BIG plus!
