Default makeing and aluminum mold for a 66012 airfoil Q-500 racer

I am looking for help .
I need data for the 66012 airfoil so that I can have a shop cut the mold from aluminum blocks. So far I have not ben able to find the right kind of data to feed into a CNC cutter.
Can any one help.

Rick, what does your CNC machine need a DAT file which TCH has supplied or a DWG file for something like SmartCAD? We need to know format.

The mechine shop told me that they need it file in G-code prorraming SANUC control
This is what the CNC needs to make the cut.
what I need is the actual air foil In I program called Solid Works.Its some kind of a cad Program.

It's a ascii file, you can read it with notepad.
It isn't G-code, nor Solid Works file.

I used CompuFoil.com program. You need to have the wing tips done by a programer. Have it put in a DXF file the CNC can read.

A CNC cutter needs a 3-D model in G-code to be able to do it's job. ProfiliPro can export G-code but I believe it is 2-D only. I have 3-D CAD modeling capabilities and can provide a 3-D CAD model in several formats but I don't think I can export it to G-code as this is somewhat "black magic" If you want me to do a different 3-D solid CAD model for you, let me know the specifics and I'll send it to you. You are correct about SolidWorks, it is a 3-D solid modeling CAD program, it is VERY expensive, and the file format is proprietary to them, but it can IMPORT other file formats.

I attempted to attach to this posting a N66-012 wing in three different formats but this forum does not support anything except "image" type formats, thus I can't post them for you here. Send me your email and I'll send them to you directly. The wing has a chord of 9.875" and a span of 52" for an area of 504 sqin. It uses the NACA 66-012 airfoil from the UIUC airfoil database. The wing has no twist or "washout" and uses an "elliptical" tip chord distribution. It is "possible" that I might be able to export a wing to you in SolidWorks format, but it will have to wait until Tuesday when I get home since I make my living as an airline pilot and I am currently "on the road".

Even though I can't post the actual files, here is a "pretty picture" in .pdf format
