Turbine Blower, housing, and motor electric motor mount. by johnnyrobot Dec 21, 2013

Description

This turbine blower assembly was inspired by http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:39755.

I had some problems finding the right motor/gear combination so I modified the turbine so that it could fit a common 9-18V electric motor. I believe I used a Radio Shack# 273-256

The upper housing has added support in the output tube that can easily be cut out.

3/24/14 - Added solid models! Enjoy!

The hardware required is:

7 M3-.5X10mm Socket cap screws.
7 M3-.5 Nylon Lock Nuts
14 M3 Flat Washers

and 2 screws for the motor. I don't know the exact size. I couldn't find them at the Home Depot. I robbed them from a junk laptop I had in my basement. (Possibly M2 or M2.5?)

Enjoy!

I would recommend using a different slicer. I used slic3r at first. Then I moved to Cura. After Cura, I went with Simplify 3D

so anyone having trouble printing the turbine. My machine jumps or stops around a lot in the fins when filling in and it makes it really rouph looking. I'm using slicer3r so any suggestions?

Michael,

I can't figure out how to rotate my design in Alibre Design. Have you tried Cura yet? I moved from Slicer to Cura because I was able to rotate stl files.

I'll see what I can do.

Can you upload an stl file of the upper housing so that it lays flat? I can not figure out how to rotate it in slicer.

No whistle sound. It's just a blower.

okay tnx just what i need :)

heey dose it make that whistle sound ??
