i am trying to createe an extruded airfoil section for rear spoiler on a car. is it possidle to plot the points on fht sketcher, or create a datum curve with the cooridanate points of the airfoil section, or the equation of the airfoil section. From the models that i have seen the number of points range from 75 to 100 indivudual points with a dx/dy point.

Well, my first thought is if you have a file containing the X & Y points, you can import them into a point feature and then create a datum curve through points. When you do that, make sure that you select whole array rather than pick point by point (picking 75 to 100 points can be tiring).
