    What information are you starting with?

    Does the model need to be an accurate representation of a specific propeller, or just look like a propeller?

    How much Rhino experience do you have? What have you modeled in Rhino?

    Rhino allows to work with polysurfaces that, in certain cases, can be considered as solid. Exporting these "solids" to other CAD programs may have problems.

    Mr. DCockey
    I am still a newbie rhinoceros because it has only been using it for the last year.
    Yes, it needs propeller specific model that is wageningen B-series.
    i use rhinoceros for 3d propeller model because i saw instruction on propcad that to make 3d model solid proppeller use rhinoceros.

    Thanks.

    A solid in Rhino is a closed polysurface without any naked edges. To check for naked edges use the ShowEdges command and check the Naked Edges option. Any naked edges will be displayed. Also ShowEdges will report in the command line display the total number of edges and the number of naked edges found.

    Yasir, do you have access to PropCad. or did you just see some instructions on the PropCad website?

    Have you tried to create a propeller model in Rhino?

    I do not know.
    I, in your place, in this case, would work directly with solidworks.

    Do you have a link to those instructions?

    You could also ask questions about Rhino on the Rhino forum: McNeel Forum https://discourse.mcneel.com/

    This propellor drawing method shows how to quickly transfer design points to the propellor profile.

    I want to design propeller type b-series to analyze it in ansys.
    do you know what software can be used other than solidwork and rhino to create a solid propeller b-series model. ?
