Nice! I tried something similar in OpenSCAD and it worked really well:


You can even scale the layers to get a more rounded propeller blade. :-)

Extrude-Scale by Function: Propeller

That's a nice design. I've been looking for prop files to download and haven't found anything that suits my needs. After a lot of messing around in Sketchup, I tried Solidworks and came back to Sketchup.

Where I was extruding it up 1/2 inch in Sketchup and then rotating it, this time I extruded it a little, rotated a little, repeat, repeat, repeat.

It took about three hours today to develop the technique, but now I can do it in about 5 minutes from a blank file. Exporting the .stl is pretty effo
rtless and quick.
