Airfoil Sketch from File

Airfoil Sketch from File

Sistema operativo:


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.


  • Use an existing sketch line as a 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 a 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.

  • Brilliant but can be improved
    Kaveh Hosseini | maggio 17, 2023 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    I absolutely love this little add-in and have been using it extensively. Thank you very much Le Bear CNC for making it available, it's really nice. The only limitation is the directionality. If I draw a line from left to right versus right to left, everything changes. So for example, if I am in Fusion's "Left" view with Y pointing left and Z pointing up, I must draw my line going from +Y (right) to -Y (left). If I do the opposite, it gives me an incomprehensible error. This is not properly explained. I guess the workaround is to always have an airfoil sit in a separate component and then scale and assemble it where you actually want it with the proper incidence angle, dihedral, etc.

  • Great Tool
    Sandip Dhillon | ottobre 26, 2021 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Using this tool significantly sped up my workflow. I am currently working on aerospace projects, and as a software engineer I appreciate a well-written tool. This tool does exactly what it says on the tin and in my experience it works without any bugs.

    I have the same issue

    Kale Macormic | gennaio 08, 2022

    I am also having the same issue intermittently. Most of the time I get this same error, but a few times it worked as expected. It must be some edge case.

    宣道 河上 | gennaio 20, 2022

    I have the same problem. Somtime it works but almost every time it fails with the message. I want to know the reason why.

    Kirill Senukov | gennaio 30, 2022

    ..., "If the cook does not lie to us...," then such a message appears when the chord of the profile is indicated by the "usual" line. When I change a line to "construction," there is no such message.

    Joonas Hint | marzo 21, 2022

    It only accepts airfoils in left and right positions in sketch. You need to draw the line down the middle. If you draw from left to right you will get this.

  • When it works its invaluable!
    Rob Mcgeown | febbraio 14, 2021 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    When it works this tool is invaluable! Unfortunately it frequently errors and once it does it seems impossible to get it working again.


  • Simple et efficace
    Mike Mike | dicembre 02, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)


    Effectivement , l'application ne fonctionne plus et c'est vraiment dommage.

    C'est regretable qu'elle disparaisse avec la dernière mise à jour. Si utile pour travailler sur les profils et elle rendait un fier service.

    A souhaiter vivement que les développeurs puissent entendre notre SOS . . . .

    Bernard Marie Grosperrin (Autore) | dicembre 03, 2020

    La mise en jour est maintenant disponible.

  • It worked before, but...
    Christof Eugster | novembre 24, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    This is a great tool, but it does not work with the latest Version of fusion360. I pay for my version of Fusion360 and it would be nice if it worked again...

    Bernard Marie Grosperrin (Autore) | dicembre 03, 2020

    Update available now. It does work again.

  • Useful tool
    Marcin Spochacz | novembre 14, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Creating airfoils in Fusion360 is a lot easier with it! Thank you

    Mike Mike | dicembre 02, 2020

    I launch an S.O.S. to bring it back !!!!! Now, i hope i hope . . .

  • Please update

    Looks to do exactly what i want it to but does not work. Please update so it works with the most recent version of fusion.

    Done, update available.

  • No file popup after clicking ok
    Peter Mumford | novembre 03, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    This was working really well but now I don't get the pop up to select my .dat file after selecting the construction line and clicking on 'ok'

    The version of Fusion 360 I am running is 2.0.9305

    函宇 梅 | novembre 13, 2020

    I just find, I can't use it too, like yous

  • Dimension and scaling problems
    Kjeld Mathias Petersen | gennaio 14, 2020 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    There are some problems with loading data points that are beyond the dimension (-1;-1) to (1;1). I found that it was best to stay within these limits.

  • Great airfoil add-in for Fusion
    Jeff Thier | febbraio 18, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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 | febbraio 13, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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. 

    Bernard Marie Grosperrin (Autore) | febbraio 22, 2019

    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 | febbraio 08, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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 | febbraio 02, 2019 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    Works great, simple and efficient.


  • Very useful, but I have this nasty bug with V1.0
    Fabien Gagné | dicembre 30, 2018 Download verificato (Guida rapida)

    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" target="_blank">

    Bernard Marie Grosperrin (Autore) | febbraio 22, 2019

    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

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

    Trés bien!

  • Best airfoil addin for Fusion 360
    Bernard Marie Grosperrin | giugno 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!
