How can I do a linear+circular pattern for a shredder machine?
I am working on a shredder machine project and I have a problem. Currently, I need to put 36 blades with an angle of 10 degree between them on an axis and I have no idea about how to do that in a simple way. I dit it on SolidWorks using the linear pattern with angles. Can I do this at inventor ?
You can't pattern the blades directly in a helical pattern. Create a shaft with some feature patterned in on a helical curve. Constrain the blade to the shaft in the assembly. Then pattern the blades selecting the feature pattern of the shaft. I used a patterned hole on the shaft for simplicity. You would probably use a keyway or something similar.
You would likely have to do something like this on the real assembly anyway.

Thank you all! You helped me a lot !
