any idea on how to draw 60 blades of the turbine rotor ... izit there is a function in gambit to draw 1 blade and arrange all the 60 blades nicely on the rotor and merge it ... ... any tutorial or link on drawing repeated items on a circular surface will do ... thank you

Geometry-Volume command button-copy volumes, inside this box set copy-rotate and number of copies and define the axis of rotation. Good luck!
