Help Group discussion • NACA 4-digit series, cambered airfoil ordinates • Uses an Excel spreadsheet to calculate 2D coordinates (x,y) • The z-coordinates are all zero • The 3D coordinates are imported into SketchUp, using a plugin, "Cloud_V6" • The imported guidepoints are then rotated around the "red" axis, and "stitched" together with line entities to form the profile face • "Push/pull" and wingtip-profile scaling follow, to complete two wing examples • Click on the URL, below, to read the Help Group discussion for details of the process, and download a copy of the Excel spreadsheet(s) #aircraft #airfoil #Airplane #camber #Help_Group #NACA #ordinates #wing
