Many high-quality designs are created using surfacing commands in SOLIDWORKS 3D design software. These commands can seem daunting to use if you’re not too experienced, however, many of them are a lot simpler than you might think!
For example, many thin-walled bodies, like this fan blade, are created from just a couple of features. Often times surface bodies are created to be oversized and incorporate twist and curvature, and then they’re trimmed back to refine the shape. Then the thin walled body can be created from thickening the surface. Watch this quick video to see how simple it is to use these surfacing tools to create a fan blade.
