Description

here`s a part generator for a darieus turbine in openSCAD .
the second script has an axle but requires the first script to be in the same directory.

rotate extrude ? I thought that created a torus from a 2Dcircle
if you use linear extrude with a twist you can get things like this:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quietrevolution_wind_turbine

but with an aerofoil I don`t know if conventional manufacturing can do that
Since public domain is less restrictive than GPL, I think it is probably fine as PD, and GPL is not required.
Btw, I like vertical column turbines. Very cool (and useful) application for openSCAD. I think rotate extrude would be a nice feature for making a variant of this... :)
Since we're 3D printing, we have almost complete freedom of shape!

If you make an axle in the middle the bridges may be printable too.

The capped teardrop's (based on) mine and was released GPLv2+. If you use it, derivative works should also be GPLv2 and later.
