how big of a printer do you need

i too murdered a dvd player...

Fermunoz,Thanks for the turbine model.
I took your advice and printed at 90* on glass. I also reduced the filament flow to 97%, to ensure there was no over extrusion on the fan blades. The infill I reduced to 10% as there is not much structural requirement. All bits came out extremely well. Cheers David in W.OZ

Hi, fermunoz.. cool fan.. i made an optional wide add-on base for it so its more stable on my bed. i put it in a remix.. thanks again for your design..


So im measuring and the motor diameter is 0.5mm larger than the spot it sits in. Do you just kinda force it in or did you have to sand the plastic back a little? There is also the issue of the wires, I am worried they will get pinched while pushing the motor in.

Hey, thanks for this nice model.

Can you tell me which motor you use? how big is it? I will print this in the same scale and want to look for the right motor - diameter and height...

Thanks for your answer. But you use with 24mm diameter, right? the picture show 32mm....i ordered a 24mm now and hope it fits.

Another question. I got massive problems with the prop (turbine). the problem is, that the model doesnt adhere on my printing surface. I think it depends on the less surface of the prop. do you print it with raft or support?

Yes, i use 24mm diameter sorry... my mistake.
is like this one... http://i01.i.aliimg.com/img/pb/033/603/271/271603033_372.jpg more or less...
i've print the prop on the glass at 90ºC only whith hair spray for better adhesion
the material is ABS.

Does is mange to push a lot of air? I'm looking for a unique desk fan.

how do you join them together

Nice looking! Do you have some video, how its work?

Nice Job
how much time did it take to print ?

Thanks for Sharing

Aprox 8hs, i use 2 perimeters, 10% infill 0.2mm at 90mm/s in a prusa i3.

Thank-you Really nice

thanks to you!, if you print the model please post a picture.
