Hello, first u have to find the profile coordinates of the steam turbine blade. this can be found if u search in the web. then when u could find those x an y coordinates, u have to use Spline tool in the SolidWorks. (any other softwares have the same ability like Powershape, ...)
if u extrude it, u will have a simple blade which should be rotated around a hub.

I think I gave u some guidelines.
BTW: I could find airfoil profile of the Wind Turbine Blade here:

Thanks for the link to the profiles. I was just about asking of where to get aerofoil profiles of The Wind Turbine Blades. Will go ahead and try that out on Solid Works.
