This is a simple three stage steam engine design that I hope to cast in aluminum sometime in the future. The design was based from the book "Model Steam Engines: How to Design and Build Them."
Print the parts out, construct the turbine (the top and bottom case parts can be hot-glued/heat gunned together, but I added some tabs so they can be tapped on the aluminum version), and then test it out (it should work with breath or compressed air).

So what's this mean?
We're sure matrhint would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
