Tutorial: how to create a aerofoil blade in solidworks (used in drones/helicopters/turbines etc)


airfoil is Nasa/langley hsnlf(1)-0213

  1. Step 1:

    create a new plane..., name it Tip

  2. Step 2:

    create a new plane..., name it Root

  3. Step 3:

    create a new plane..., name it Connector

  4. Step 4:

    create airfoil shape in right plane, with AOA of 8 degrees

  5. Step 5:

    create airfoil shape in Tip plane, with AOA of -6 degrees

  6. Step 6:

    create airfoil shape in Root plane, with AOA of 0 degrees

  7. Step 7:

    create circle in Connector plane,

  8. Step 8:

    use loft...

  9. Step 9:

    add fillets

  10. Step 10:

    add more fillets

  11. Step 11:
