Hey people,

I've got some axial fans, and I can't seem to analyse their mass properties in Bladegen. The button is greyed out and I've tried everything to get it to work. I just want the weight of my fans given a specific material density. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Omar

if gui/graphics looks weird or menus dissapear from your screen try clicking on

view>window>reset layout

if that doesent work try to delete the .cfx folder from your user directory (not sure about unix, I use windows)

Thanks ckleanth. There wasn't a problem with the GUI. It seemed like the blade required some pre-requisite input before I could analyse it's mass properties.

Though I couldn't find how to un-grey the button, I resolved the problem by outputting the models into CAD software and analysed their masses that way.

Thanks for the help anyway.
