Wind turbine blade design / Betz Optimum Blade

I am trying to design a wind turbine blade. The blade will be consist of NACA 63215. The chord length will vary from section to section.

To form a blade like that, Lofted Boss tool can be used. But what if I need to twist the blade to certain angle at every section?

Swept boss tool can be used to twist the sections, but does it allow the user to change the cross section. And

what would be the last step, if I want to make the blade empty inside?


Thanks in advance for your help.
