Blade modeling ??

Hi all!


I would like to (try to) design an airplane with Inv. Fusion, a lot of work ahead especially for a newbie...


Maybe I have not found how to do it properly but how can I design a prop blade using polyline section shapes of the blade, in sequence, each one in different (parallel) planes and twisted in slightly different angles? And finally generate the blade (even without a guide line)?


Is there a way to do that in Inv. Fusion? The soft don't seem to have the ability to generate complex shapes connecting parallel sections or using more complex guide lines but maybe I'm wrong...


Thks a lot!

Dave. From Belgium.
