I want to make an exact 3D CAD model of a fan:
I have two 3D scans (front and back) of my fan blades and I can not import the stl files into SolidWorks as a solid body because they are too large.
All I need is to measure the blades (actually one of them, because they are the same) to get the data I need to make a 3D CAD. I tried the way described here http://www.swtuts.com/?p=427 but it didn't work for me.
Can you please help me to get the desired dimensions?
Thank you very much!
Ok the tutorial didn't follow...
I'll retry :

Thank you very much for this great explanation! :) I already have my model of a fan, but I will definitely try your way to see if I can get more precise blade geometry. Thank you again.
I can carry them out successly . You can use Geomagic studio. Which can measure the blade. you want.
I already have the 3D cad image of a fan. It is not perfect, but looks good. On moday I will do little adjustments and then it is finished. So, thank you for your help.
Can you make me a 3D CAD image which I can import to SolidWorks?
Select the measure from evaluate tab.
