Tutorial to model a fan blade in Catia V5

  1. Step 1:

    Create the base on which the blades will be made.Create a point on the lower edge.

  2. Step 2:

    Similarly create a point on the upper edge at a certain lateral distance from the first point.

  3. Step 3:

    Create a 3d line between the points and choose support as the lateral face of the padded object.

  4. Step 4:

    Switch to GSD Workbench

  5. Step 5:

    Extrude the line along zx plane

  6. Step 6:

    Invoke a sketch on xy plane

  7. Step 7:

    Sketch the shape of the blade and make the end coincident with the edge of the padded object.

  8. Step 8:

    Exit the sketch

  9. Step 9:

    Extrude the sketch with reference as the xy plane

  10. Step 10:

    Split out the unnecessary parts by using "split" command

  11. Step 11:

    Hide the extruded part which is not necessary

  12. Step 12:

    Switch to mechanical part design workbench

  13. Step 13:

    Insert->surface based features->thick surface

  14. Step 14:

    Provide some thickness. Click OK

  15. Step 15:

    Tools->hide->all surfaces

  16. Step 16:

    Click on circular pattern

  17. Step 17:

    Fill with appropriate parameters

  18. Step 18:
