  • now what? its installed
    peter PAN | junio 19, 2020 Descarga verificada (¿Qué es esto?)

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

  • 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.

  • Great plug-in

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

  • 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
