Making a pattern around a cylinder

We are trying to create a pattern around a cylindar so that we can create a fan blade for one of our projects. I made a cylindar for the base of the assembly, and I created a blade, but I cannot figure out how to pattern copies of the blade around the base evenly. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks.....

Re: Making a pattern around a cylinder

You would use an Axis Pattern to do this. Select the fin, click Pattern and in the dashboard, change the pattern type to Axis.

If you need help, the Advanced Primer can be referenced as it uses this method to pattern extrude features in the wheel design.

Thank You!!!!! That was the exact answer I needed. I didn't realize there was an advance primer. It is very informative.
