5. It will generate the three files in x,y coordenates that you can draw and plot in CAD or Excel

In exchange, we would be very grateful if you could reference authors and the institution (LABSON - Fluid Mechanics Department, UPC) in your reports, papers, journal papers, technical reports, ... when the software is used (license).
