Hello dear friend "Plateau_bobines_B_HD.stl " and " Plateau_bobines_A_HD.stl "
what is the difference.. Thank you

Will you be posting an assembly video?

Allez vous éditez une vidéo pour assemblage?


Thank you for posting this. What is the big difference between this model and your earlier one? Also, do you have any detailed plans for this or videos?

Thanks again!

Cool design! I really like how compact it is(or looks?) and how you managed to keep the non-printable parts easy :)
Did you ever test how much power you could get out of it?
I´m working on a fully printable wind turbine (rotor is nearly finished 1,3m diameter) and am now looking for a suitable generator.
The files will hopefully go up here soon, but my PC just crashed after 2 hours of writing, more luck next time ;-)
Keep up the nice work :)

Hi, lotta parts ! lotta magnets and a Y-wiring config - I wonder what the output is , like 5-10 , maybe 15 watts at a few hundred rpm ?
