SolidWorks Part Reviewer: Reverse Engineered Propeller

PropellerReverse Engineered Propeller: This part is modeling differently from most SolidWorks parts. Because the model is a reverse engineer of an existing part using 3D scan data, design intent will not be built into the part. Many sketches will not be dimensioned, or use the “Fix” relation to lock them in. As this part is a copy of something all already exists, the ability to quickly make changes isn’t important.

Complexity: Complex
Features used: 3D scan, Extrude, Boundary Surface
