Finfoil.io is great, needs pay credits to get the super high quality though, Winghopper is currently free and is supposed to take NACA files but I couldn't get it to load an mh23.txt file and gave up on it for now, so I went back to the drawing board and did some openscad coding and now I can do fun things like this:

I'm not set up to take NACA files in it at the moment but I can still tweak up a wing profile just how i want it and then do mods 8)

Wing looks great! Love to see it. WingHopper can take normal foil section .DAT files if you just chaange the .DAT extension to a .TXT. Post the file if you're having any more problems and I'll take a look.
