This is a simple design for an experimental generator that you could attach to a propeller or turn wheel to generate electricity. I've been trying to find a cost effective way of making small wind generators or water generators. There are kits out there for 20 to 30 bucks but I think this could be done a lot cheaper with a maker bot.

The winder file is where you would wind magnet wire about 60 times. You do this on all four sides. The box allows you to slide in the winder sections and it would house radio shack magnets with holes in them on a spindle. When you turn the magnets it hopefully generates a current. I haven't tested it since I don't have a maker bot.
