Tutorial how to create a simple fan?

These are the steps below...

  1. Step 1:

    First o all we must create the hub that will hold the fan blades.. SO we create a sketch in any plane we want....

  2. Step 2:

    Then we revolve to create the hub... (can be done with extrude... its up t you..)

  3. Step 3:

    Next we sketch the fan blade, as it would be flat...(like before the pressing)

  4. Step 4:

    Then we extrude it.. (NOTE we do NOT merge result because we want to modify the blade before adding it to the hub)

  5. Step 5:

    To continue, we click on the flex feature, located in Insert->features->flex and we select the blade as a body to flex... We choose twist option from the menu.

  6. Step 6:

    we adjust the twisting planes in order to twist the blade in the desired direction...

  7. Step 7:

    After twisting, we are done with the blade treatment, and we circular pattern the blade, as a solid body. (we pattern the blade body)

  8. Step 8:

    Finally we combine the blades with the hub....

  9. Step 9:

    and the result is a simple fan:)
