QinX submitted a new resource:

Noctua NF-A9x14 - Noctua 92mm Fan 15mm Thickness + PWM

Measured with digital calipers, only misses the fan cable and the fan retention clip.
The fan is 15mm with the rubber bumpers, but without them it is 14.2mm View attachment 72

Any tips on modeling the fan blades?

I didn't realize someone already made a model of the NF-P12 when I started but I'm too far into my model of the NF-P12 PWM to give up now but the fan blades are proving tricky.

I don't even know where to start explaining how to do it. I used this Youtube video but it applies to Autodesk Inventor.
It is step by step, but no explaination so you have to repeat the motions, but that might be difficult if you aren't using Inventor.
You manipulate surfaces until you have the fanblade shape, they you "solidify" it and I then use the revolve function to the get amount of blade needed.

Hmm, the curvature of the P12 blades is more pronounced so I'm don't think that method will work. My idea was to outline the blades as much as possible and then loft the profiles, we'll see.
