How to model Propeller in Solidworks?


  1. Step 1:

    Create new plane (plane1), choose right plane as first reference and offset=500mm

  2. Step 2:

    Sketch a elips with width=60mm and height=20mm on right plane like picture below (sketch1)

  3. Step 3:

    Sketch a point on plane1, and make this coincident with the origin point (sketch2)

  4. Step 4:

    Create loft from sketch1 and skect2 (Loft1)

  5. Step 5:

    Create flex from loft 1 (Flex1), choose twisting, checklist hard edge, angle=45 degrees, and trim plane1 distance=50mm

  6. Step 6:

    Create circle with diameter=130mm on top plane like picture below (sketch3),

  7. Step 7:

    Create boss-extrude the sketch3 like picture below (boss-extrude1), choose mid plane direction with depth=40mm

  8. Step 8:

    Create cir-pattern loft1 (cir-pattern1), checklist the equal spacing, spacing=360 degrees, and instances=3.

  9. Step 9:

    Create dome with depth=40mm like picture below

  10. Step 10:
