Anything, or part of anything that is exposed to a moving gas or liquid can benefit from a streamlined shape. 

In particular, wings, fins, ducts, propellers and turbines can all be vastly optimized by using the optimal correct shape. 

"Optimal" is complicated; it depends on size, speed, turbulence, altitude (or depth), the properties of your medium (temperature and density) and the surface finish you use (rough or smooth). 

To further complicated things, many of those things are a range (e.g. speed, temperature, pressure, etc) and when they are, there's often one point in that range where you need to concentrate on optimizing (e.g. cruising speed at cruising altitude). 

Airfoil Tools does this optimization for you.

    Peter Matejovsky | February 05, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very nice tool! Hope planned features will get implemented as well. 

    Options for wing joiners and aerodynamic fillet would be very usefull. These are most time parts that ake lontime to get right...


  • Very nice!

    Congratulations Chris, and thankyou for providing this great add-in. Airfoils are not my business, but more an interesting pastime/hobby and having this app gives anyone a great way to explore this fascinating engineering area, and married with Fusion360 really gives the user scope to play. Major applause to you! Software is an area I could get into. What is the app written in? Python?

  • Insane that it's free
    Marek Ištok | December 29, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've never seen this kind of a tool publicly available anywhere, let alone integrated right into a CAD environment. Just amazing.

  • It's great!
    Orazio Vescovi | December 19, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I've been looking for such a tool for a while now, and it is exacly what I needed. Thank you for the amazing resource.

    Hope the propeller generator is added soon.

  • Great tool! can't wait for additional menu options to come live
    Karen Lombard | December 13, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    thanks very much for making this resource available! +1 on hoping the duct option works soon

  • Super Tool
    Walter Reist | November 30, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Bis jetzt habe ich nur das Import Tool für Profile benutzt.Auch für weniger geübte  Anwender ist das Tool ein super Werkzeug mit der Option zum reduzieren der Punkte am Profil ,und es ist auch möglich die Austrittskante  auf die gewünschte Dicke anzupassen. (Last Beta 30.11)


  • Great tool
    Kursat Uvez | November 30, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I have been using this tool since its first version. I've tried to do complicated imports from dat files, drawings. This tool allows me to create them easily. It also allows me to see the CL/CD of the sectionsit generated. The features keeps coming, so I expect this to be even better.

  • Ducts
    ron toller | November 24, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Absolutely great tool. I realy hope the ducts will come also so I can use that on my self building cinewhoops

  • Airfoil import?
    José Alfredo Rosas Córdova | November 16, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    It is a really nice and complete tool, but it'd be nice to have the option to import .DAT files.

  • Excellent tool!
    Romain Bazile | October 08, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Very useful, full of options and a good documentation, perfect!
