OpenSCAD EDF Rotor

So I wrote a piece of OpenSCAD code to let me design axial flow compressors (EDF rotor+stator). I wanted to have a go at 3d printing them, to see if I could do it. I've produced the code to make NACA4 airfoils with twist and taper. However, a bug in OpenSCAD forces me to hard code the # of vertices for the foil object. So I may have to abandon the use of OpenSCAD.

Here's a discussion about the issue I'm having on OpenSCAD's Github issues page. I'm hopeful, OpenSCAD is too important a design tool to not allow such a functionality. Perhaps some funds should be raised for a small bounty.

Did you ever post the code? I am using your other stl version but want to customize the motor mount and thr shaft diameter for the rotor. Printed the base files and they came out well just want to use the motors I have.
