New Zealander Gerry Hamilton has designed a jet engine on a 3D printer. The model is powered by compressed air and it can be seen as a complex demonstration model of a real jet. The fun thing about this jet engine is that it is actually a tutorial, so you can create your own model. This can help you to improve your technical skills.
The jet engine is made on a UP Plus Printer. If you want to fly away with this project yourself, you can check out this link. It will explain you everything about the project and you can download the necessary software.
De reactions on the tutorial video by Hamilton are already very positive. One customer calls the project “insanely great”, while another person thinks it’s “DANGEROUSLY COOL”. Another person says the following about the video: “wow, the video was impressive! Glad I could be a part of it!”
