Well that's just too big for my printer.  Not going to bother looking for the files.  
Link Posted: 8/29/2015 11:49:46 PM EDT
That's pretty cool.

that is freaking awesome...

really cool. I want a 3d printer

not a wasted click.

that's pretty dang cool.

How can it be called fully functional, if it isn't turning JetA into thrust and noise?

Looks to be an electric motor driven fan with a thrust reverser.

Not a functioning jet engine, but still cool.

Functional TR complete with blocker doors.  

And masking tape to secure the camera.

That's awesome!  Could that provide anywhere enough thrust (with two of them) on a drone?
Link Posted: 8/30/2015 12:30:56 AM EDT
Functional? I can make a thing that is spun by an electric motor and call it a jet engine too, but it ain't a jet engine
Link Posted: 8/30/2015 12:35:15 AM EDT
Pretty flipping sweet!   Not sure how it doesn't melt itself together when spinning at those high RPM.  Wonder if he's added a metal shaft and lubricated or ball bearings to it...

Well, technically, it's now a ducted fan.

Yeah. I don't call the EDFs in my RC planes jet engines either

OP - it isn't "fully functioning" unless it can turn kerosene into noise, thrust, heat and fumes - which I have a hard time believing a plastic model can do.

Even if it was made using one of the metal-sintering printers and could withstand some heat, combustion effects do not scale worth a shit.

A jet designed for operation at one scale will absolutely not work well, if at all, at another scale.

What about at 100.1% scale?

Would play with.

What is involved in generating the files for the printer to use?

Also, that's amazing.

Well it pretty much looks like shit, actually.  3D printed (sintered metal) parts are actually used in real live rockets and jet engines, and don't look like they're made of legos.  That's more impressive to me.

Wait, you're comparing a model that was made with a $3,000 printer (I'm guessing at that price) with a precision manufacturing machine that probably costs more than a million dollars?





Why?  Is it because I used the word 'sophisticated' in the context of hobby-level 3D printing (which this so obviously is?)

Look, if you want to shit out some crudely constructed facsimile of an engine, don't fucking call it functional when it is not by any definition of the term.  Is it a cool little project?  Sure.  Is it functional?  Absolutely not. Words mean things.

I agree - in principle.  However, the word 'functional' is ambiguous in this context.  Does it function?  Yes it does.  And anyone who isn't driven by a compulsive need to read unambiguous sentences knows that this model could never be functional in the context of powering a Boeing 787, and simply appreciates it for what it is.
