How to successfully rotate both propellers of an electric fan?

By Mary Grace Salvador on 11 Dec 09:25 1 answer 797 views 3 comments

I've spent two hours trying to figure out how to make both propellers of my ceiling fan to rotate. I've also used google but no such luck.
The propellers would rotate BUT if I add another motor for the other propeller, only one of them would rotate. Either of the two would rotate. Not both of them though.

I uploaded my files. I don't know if you need the parts to open the assembly or not so I just uploaded all of them.

    Mary, I downloaded your model, added 2 motors and worked. I just fixed part2 and part3 and added motors to body1 and body2. I am using SW14.
