Build your own jet and check it out on youtube.com/watch?v=6rX4xv5-NvE

Put a pressure regulator on the air line or it will blow to bits!

You will need:

10 x 220 mm steel shaft

10 x 14 x 10 needle roller bearing (x 2)

10 x 22 x 6 bearing

10 x 30 x 9 bearing

10 x 24 x 9 thrust bearing (x 2)

14 x 20 x 96 Ali tube (you can print this but it might bend)

Made on an UP plus printer.

When making the air jets "pause the printer" and remove any support material.

Make the air jets with the jets at the bottom.

The perspex cover has a 10 degree fillet at the front

Drink Lots, Fall down more

Hello, i'm Danillo.I'm doin a college work and , if its possible, i wanna know if you can help me and my group with information about the construction of an jet engine. We have an idea about how it ismaded, but we need help with details about the parts and the compressed air. (Brazilian, sorry for any error on the english)
Ive just finished that. and actually it doesnt spin dispite the fact that there are 2 bearing rings in my construction and tonns of lubrikant.
how powerfull was your source of compressed air? mine is 3 liters per second and 8 bars pressure.
sorry for my english, im just a russian student)

hi, where to feed start and run air line?
hey I am in the process of printing this, and the fan blades are not printing very good, they have a lot of loose filament and warped fins, is there anyway to get a better print of these, I used to work on aircraft in the marine corps, and no even with a plastic engine I don't want any lose fod, and I need tight tolerances, any advice would be great, I am using slic3er and pronterface on a plastibot printer, the bed size is not a problem.
try to change the angle of support material to 60. that helped me alot.
how did you make the clear cover?
can you post a exploded diagram to show where each part belongs?
hello, very impressive! may i ask which program you have used to design this ?
Awesome video. Any chance you could identify where the needed parts go/assembly directions?
Wow, the video was impressive! Glad I could be apart of it!

Is there anyway we could get the rest of the build materials and maybe some info on construction?
Interesting, have you built one?
