Kayak Paddle in SolidWorks


What's a kayak without a paddle? A very bad day. I created the ends of this paddle using a Revolve and an Extrude. I then used two Flex features to twist and bend the part. There are left and right configurations of the part, as the left and right paddle ends bend and twist in opposite directions. The paddle ends are offset 90 degrees from one another so as not to create unneeded air resistance when the paddle is lifted out of the water. Enjoy, and thanks for viewing!
