Help!
Airfoil plotter for Mac

MacFoil is no more. Somebody recently posted a plotter that would work on current OS X, and after a hard drive replacement I can't find it

All I need to do is plot a Supra vertical so I can saw out a template.

Thanks,
Dave

Draftsight, all the features of Autocad for free! With MAC compatibility:

A little digging and you can get the airoils from Drela's coordinates into draftsight, that is how I did all my templates for hotwire cutting. Can use XFLR5 to generate airfoil coordinates if needed, also MAC compatible: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xflr5/files/v6.10.03/

Sam, I just downloaded Draftsight, but I'm gonna need a treasure map to know where to dig to get the Drela files into it. Is there a tutorial somewhere? I can't seem to find it.
Thanks,
Dave
