Home wind turbine based on a NACA 4412's profile with an optimized twisting


You can print support of your choose and numbers of blades you'll need.

to print blades, I disabled fill support in skeinforge as sections are to thin to be printed (it cause me trouble)

I've use a hot air gun to mount blades on support (few seconds at 240C°)

For the first time I tried to reinforce parts with polyester resin and fiberglass. It's a complete success...

I'll reuse this technique in the future.

How did you connect the fins to the base? Looks like you have slid the fins over the protrusions on the base but my fins are solid across the bottom.

How did you do the reinforcing?

I use a brush to apply a thin layer of polyester resin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyester_resin)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P.... During the polymerisation I put fiberglass ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiberglass)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F... on the surface to reinforce (this kind of fibre are very strong)...

I'd try to show the process on pics 3,4,6,7...

PS: I have woven fiberglass but I separate them to have juste a thread

Aha! thanks!
