rectangle pattern

Inventor 2013 part file attached.

 

I am trying to get the rectangle pattern to form 8 blades of the same shape and height across the barrel.A picture shows how the height is lost within the barrel..The only blade which is the same height is the 2 outside blades

Is the rectangle the right tool to produce the result?

This same question has come up here several times in the past - is it a class assignment?

A search should turn up the solution.  As I recall there is a bit of a trick.

I have made some progress.Should the blades be equal distances between each other...sketch shows different distances even though the 2 outside blades are same
