SOLIDWORKS Part Reviewer: Impeller Tutorial

Impeller: This single body part starts as a multi-body and shows how to use body patterns to control geometry in ways that feature patterns can’t always do. This part includes two body patterns, surface cuts, helix curves and a Combine feature. This part also highlights the use of “Feature Scope” to control which bodies are affected by surface cuts. Download this file to see how to use multi-bodies to create this more challenging blade geometry.
