Summary

This project is for the KamerMaker, a mobile full scale 3d printing machine, that we are currently building in Amsterdam, Netherlands (http://www.kamermaker.com).

The facade of the KamerMaker will be perforated and we will be insterting these wind turbines into the perforations. These designs are still preliminary so there are a few bugs we need to work out but we welcome your recommendations and tips.

Instructions

There are 4 parts to the wind turbine design:

  1. Wind mill holder with screw connection - part 1
  2. Wind mill holder with screw connection - part 2
  3. Mini motor with led - part 3 (http://www.dealextreme.com/p/wind-powered-led-light-for-vehicles-2-pack-5172)
  4. Wind mill blades
    You can see some images of the design on our blog: http://www.dusarchitects.dds.nl/kamermaker/wordpress/?p=410

Hiw will the wind flow through the turbines when there is a solid wall behind them? Or is the wind supposed to blow parallel to the blades?

A shame they never replied. I would suggest using vertical axis wind turbines.
