Scale Model Rocket Engine.

Designed in Solidworks. All PLA construction.


Rocket Power ! Blast off with this scale model rocket engine. Parts were all made in PLA and then assembled. Some minor clearing of holes, drilling and gluing required.

Designed in Solidworks for MakerBot internal contest - "Printober". Painted with Tamiya acrylics.

The red hose is PLA warmed under a light bulb and bent.

Center hose (print two) and glue together.

.s3g files for Replicator printing.

I use a raft on everything. Main engine bell prints fine w/o support.
