Blade Profile
 
Hi
I want to generate a blade with its airfoil points in 5 sections along its length
How can I do this?
Thanks

use excel sheet
 
hi
What I did
I created an excel sheet for airfoil points at different locations
and save each location in txt format
In solid works, there is option I guess reference curve through points (curve points can be imported from text format) then I duplicated the curve and deleted the original one. New curve can be rotated for desired twist angle.

Thanks a lot
Is it possible to break the blade height to two separate regions at hub and tip?
and one more question
can i have your work files on this subject please?

best regards

yes u can do it in solid works. I draw airfoil profiles at different sections using solid works, thn I used loft option to create blade geometry. If u need help via skype my id is unique.ijaz
