How to use through curves

Is it necessary to select preserve shape check box in through curves dialog box in airfoil design?

Or is it necessary to use "Spline points" in output surface options group?

The "preserve shape" option helps if your input has sharp corners; otherwise, the corners are approximated and can lead to undesired results. If the input is smooth (tangent continuous or better) or if the corners are not too important, you can turn the "preserve shape" option off.
