Model a propeller


Hey, i created a quick tutorial for you :)

  1. Step 1:

    Create an extrude

  2. Step 2:

    create a new plane(at a 45 degree angle for the prob volute)

  3. Step 3:

    Create a sketch and then a midplane extrude of 2mm thick. please note that i made a prop design that is not 100% accurate, just as an example. make sure you dont use"merge bodies" option.

  4. Step 4:

    added fillets to the rough edges and then selected the "flex" option from the feature list.

  5. Step 5:

    select the twist degree and tweak the "triad" values from the bottom left, they control much of the curvature.

  6. Step 6:

    Create a circular pattern, using the "pattern body" option. i used a temporary axis there as the central axis.

  7. Step 7:

    congratulations! you have succeeded :)

  8. Step 8:

    when finished, go into bodies, combine them and then you can cut, fillet and paste them with ease :)
