When I am going to make my fans, do i group the fan( the blades, shaft,.. ect) and then select func_rotate or do i have to do each moving piece seperately???

If you are doing just a simple fan with all the blades rotating around the same axis (can they do otherwise?) then just make a shaft and the blades, and most important of all, make an origin brush in the middle of the shaft. Then select 'em all (including the hidden brush coated with origin texture) and make a func_rotate. And remember to assign a sensible rotating axis for your fan. As you know, without the origin brush, the fan will rotate around the world origin.
