This study describes a non-contact methodology of characterizing marine propeller geometric properties using 3-D scanning and computer aided design application tool. The process develops a solid virtual propeller model by converting the physical model through 3-D scanning. An outboard marine propeller of 9.25x8J1 has been utilized for the purpose of demonstrating the feasibility of this method. Studies showed that the geometric properties can be successfully characterized. The virtual modelling found a propeller nominal pitch distance value of 203.26 mm has an insignificant variance of 0.03% from that of the manufacturers design value. An average variance of 0.83% of the pitch distance across each sectional radius is also found to be insignificant as compared to the physical model.
