Talking Modeling a wind turbine blade - Linear interpolation between 2 2d profiles

Hi Community,

I am very new to 3ds MAX. Hopefully someone here can point me in the right direction. I am trying to model a wind turbine in 3ds max. Right now my biggest problem are the blade of the wind turbine. I do have 2d airfoil profile for the blade. One blade is made up of 17 2d profiles. Right now I am creating the 2d profiles in autocad and then import the profiles in 3ds max.

My problem: I can find any way to do linear surface interpolation between each of the 2d profiles. Is there anyway to do that in 3ds max? Is it better to model the rotor blade in inventor first and then import it into 3ds max? I want my blade to have accurate dimensions.

Thx you in advanced for your time ... Appreciate it
