After testing and printing several times, we discovered that the first version of the Throwing Noise Rocket was not perfect. It wasn't whistling and the thread wasn't fine enough, so we have updated a lot of things! We hope that you like the new design and please stay supporting us. We finally made the ultimate Throwing Noise Rocket, with everthing working, and getting to a decibel level of 80!
We have designed a throwing rocket that makes a lot of noise! We made this Throwing Noise Rocket for the challenge: #MakeItLoud . The intent was to design an interactive and inventive design, which wasn't in the challenge-section yet.
After a lot of research and thinking about how to make it, and how to make it interactive. We made several designs and this is the one which turned out to be the best. It's fully 3D-printable and every part can be printed separately. The colours can be changed to everyones desire.
The wind will pass through the gaps in the head of the rocket, this results in activating the propeller.
The propeller with the closed sections will act as a 'conductor' for the wind which passes through the propeller to the whistle-section.
- When the wind has reached the whistle-section, the whistles will make their incredible high-pitched sounds. The tones of the whistles will be different every time, because of the propeller.
The TNR (ThrowingNoiseRocket) is still a Work-In-Progress. This because we want to design more propellers with differents closed sections, which results in different levels of noise. Also we want to take a closer look to make it bigger/smaller/louder!
We hope you like the design and take a moment to try to print it and try it out yourself.
THROW, LISTEN, CATCH AND HAVE FUN!

Only the HEAD_v2.0 and the Whistle_Part_v2.0 need a few supports. The other parts can be printed without supports. My 3D-printer can handle it without any supports, but other 3D-printer could use some supports. The resolution depends on the quality you want to print the parts, for the infill I would choose for 20-40% because of the weight.
The first time we printed the Throwing Noise Rocket, it came out very smooth and nice. It took us about four hours to print all the parts. When it was done with printing, we stepped on some very small mistakes. Of course there are some minor flaws in the design but they will be improved as soon as possible!!!
- Thread is too thick, you can't screw it.
- Propeller is too wide, doesn't fit.
These flaws will all be improved and put back online as soon as possible!
We think that the final print will be perfect and smooth, and gives the Throwing Noise Rocket his function to make a hell of a sound!!!! We added some photos of the 3D-printed parts, they are all printed at: 0,4mm resolution and 20% infill. For the final print we want to increase the resolution to 0,1mm and for the infill we want to go for 20-30%.
We will upload the improved parts as soon as possible! And we would like to thank you all for your support and spread the word! THROWING NOISE ROCKET!!!!!
The parts of the Throwing Noise Rocket V1.0
We updated the Throwing Noise Rocket, because several things weren't right.
The first thing that changed is the whistling part. In the first version, the whistle were not able to make a good loud whistle sound. In the second design we changed it to more whistles in a different way.
Secondly, we changed the thread of the several parts. In the first design they were not good enough to set together. So we changed the thread to a fine thread.
Also we tested it out, it was hard to capture a sound with the decibel meter because we had to throw the rocket. But when we measured a level of decibel, it came to a level of 80DB!
We hope you like the final version of the Throwing Noise Rocket!
Design and brainstorming
We started this idea with brainstorming, until the first concept came. Secondly, we forwarded the concept in Inventor and created a solid design to 3D-print. But we are still in a Work-In-Progress so we are not finished yet!
