hello, I have a picture and would like to extract information. Specifically, I want to use the Finite Element Analysis Tool (app extension) to model flow around a car. On my ipad, I have drawn a simple 2D side layout (a closed curve) and would like to gain somehow the coordinates for each point (with a small spacestep). Could you please help?

If you have a picture, you can load it as a [width X height X 3] RGB image that you can then manipulate, using the "imread" function.
From there you could use the Computer Vision Toolbox to do feature detection. Specifically, I think imcontour might be useful.

When using FEATool version 1.15.1 and later your can import a bitmap image (jpeg, bmp, or png) and convert it to a two dimensional geometry (which you later can mesh and perform CFD simulations on). For example see the link below:
