      I have final year project on "Effect of Dimples on airfoil". But i could not able to find any helping material regarding creating dimples on airfoil. Please guide me how to create Dimples on airfoil. It will be much appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.

      Dimples can be made by creating an array of spheres and subtracting them from a solid body. In the image below, you can see a set of spheres that interfere with the solid rectangular block below them.
      Here is the solid block after the Combine operation has cut the spheres from the block, leaving behind dimples.

      Hi there, I tried to generate an array of spheres on the airfoil surface. But after adding them there is no increase in the solid bodies in the tree diagram. As a result when I was trying to subtract I was not able to select tool bodies and target bodies. Please help me in resolving this. Thanks in advance

      Create a new component to make the array of spheres. Then copy in a solid body of wing to do Combine function.
