It was my fault, I redesigned it and forgot to upload the stl file for the change. I think the new file I uploaded should make it work. Your prints are amazing. I hope you get the new part printed and can test it out. Thanks for the heads up on the part and apologies for taking forever to get back with you on it.
Apologies, I meant side, not size. Shouldn't the input and the output be on opposite sides? They are currently both on the low pressure side (tall side) of the turbine housing in your STL files.
I am sorry about the size problem. My machine has been down for some time, so I haven't been able to try it yet. The design was inspired from a book I read at the university I attended. As I remember, the exhaust port was supposed to be at the big side (although it is counter-intuitive and seems illogical--with the knowledge that temperature and pressure are directly related), It may have to do with allowing for condensation and pressure buildup. I would also think that this should work opposite of a jet engine.
I am super excited to see pictures!
If you want I can change that part around for you so you can try it out both ways, and do the testing, and then we can reinforce the urges to go with our guts. I will get to work on it as soon as you say go.
