"Testing 8 Innovative New Boat Propeller Designs"

There's also mention of an SLS 3D orinter by Micron Desktop ($2999).

Not: I have no affiliation to/with anything in the video. (Wait for the sneeze...)

I'm posting this because way back around 2014 someone here asked me to share one of my propellers (bad (awful) design effort, but I was myself operating blind since I can not ever recall PunchCAD offering a basic water-environs propeller, and I struggled intensely...), but I never did.

To kind of make up for that, I thought that this video I just ran into minutes ago will suffice for ideas.

Also, in a few weeks, I'll probably release the actual SharkCAD file of one of my 2019-2023 propellers. It is not lifted from other people, especially since in SharkCAD, stuff I make is amateurish and only getting inspiration, not working files, from others.

I'd like to see these props scaled to fit a competition destroyer or frigate model, since hullform (entry angle, exit angle, stern cutup, bilge round, hull type, stability, wetted surface area, friction coefficients, oresence or absence of sonar head/bulb (optimized and suboptimal), and more) will definitely impact what a given navy or modeler will put on their hulls, real-world and competition realism rules having some say.

Yes, I know about this, some cute lateral thinking with this start up, and I've been following his progress for a while.
