Hi there, I use the duplicate feature in TinkerCAD a lot. I successfully duplicated things while moving & changing the angle in one step. However, I need to duplicate a thing with moving position & changing angle & resize the object.
By this I want to create a blade, on which the blade's pitch and chord are larger at the root, and decrease to the tip of the blade. I already successfully created a blade by duplicating 1mm thick airfoil slices/objects while changing angle (i.e. changing pitch of the blade), however, I was not able to resize the airfoil shape at the same time. So this blade has a constant chord... not good.
Is there any way to do this? I hope my explanation is understandable.
Thanks for any hints. JC
Hi all, I hope that I'm not stepping on any toes.
I currently work in the 3D print industry and one thing that has become clear to me over the last year is that a lot of users will eventually get jaded with just downloading another file that they have come across online (don't get me wrong this is also a BIG plus to the industry!) They are also confused about all of the modelling software available and can't find the time to learn how to utilize them . So many great ideas that never get realized.
I have just started a forum where I hope that people like yourselves can help each other out with their projects, it's extreeemly early days as I have just started it and have yet to make a post. It would be great if there were a place people could go to and ask for help with their project (for free). Those without the modelling skills will benefit as could those who are able to hone their current skills and get involved in other projects. If you like the idea and think that you could possibly help or if you would indeed like to ask others for help then please consider joining. Starting out is the hard part and just getting the first few members could help get it rolling.
Here's the link
At the moment it's a free proboards domain but I will endeavour to upgrade it with extra bandwidth and storage as it grows.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and maybe speaking to you on the Forum.
