Introduction to BladeCalc
This program was originally written to ease building of a plug to produce glass fibre rotor blades for small wind turbines . The program uses Betz Theorem to calculate the required shape of the rotor blade.
Production of Jig templates
This program can produce blades in 2 ways:
1. Produce templates for a jig from which a planked plug can be built.
2. Produce 3 Dimensional blade profile for cutting on a CNC machine.
Automatic Blade Generation
The program can compute a blade shape given only minimal parameters:
The program will also calculate:
3D DXF output for C.A.D and CAM programs
The program will also produce DXF files, which can be used as input to Computer Aided Design program / CAM Software I.E Meshcam. This allows you to produce your turbine blades via CNC with NO knowledge of 3D drawing or blade design needed.
