PropCad is being used to interpret existing propellers, patterns, and scan reports in order to recreate legacy designs. The Scan Converter utility allows users to convert 3D inspection data (X-Y-Z or X-R-θ) into a PropCad design, 2D drawing, and reports!

    HydroComp PropCad is often used to interpret existing propellers, patterns, and scan reports in order to recreate legacy designs. The Scan Converter utility – which is now a part of PropCad Premium Edition – is used to extract propeller features such as pitch, chord, skew, rake, thickness and section offsets using 3D data points collected from a physical propeller or pattern. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how Scan Converter processes the data and recreates the propeller blade by extracting individual sections from the geometry and deriving the geometric distributions. Once the design is in PropCad, we will produce additional documentation such as 2D drawings, pitch inspection reports, and 3D offsets can be easily generated for customers, clients, and record keeping. This webinar is suitable for any existing or potential PropCad user who is interested in reconstructing existing designs in PropCad.
