About

I'm a Mechanical Engineer for a large UK Engineering Company with an interest in Product Design and Development, i've worked in this role for over 12 years and have gain valuable knowledge and experience in the Aerospace industry. I'm concerned about the environment and the impact the products I help develop have on the planet. I want to use my professional engineering skills to help develop ways that I can reduce my carbon footprint whilst making them available to the 3d printing community to maximise the benefit.

Skills

3d printing, Nx, PLM, adative layer manufacture, animation, concept, development, drafting, drawing, failure analysis, innovation, lean principles, manufacture, optimisation, product, solid modelling, solid works, test & measurement

Abraham Pineda - No it would require a redesign of a lot of parts. If its more power you are after i'm designing a much more powerful turbine using an NEMA23 Stepper. Thanks Dan

@Bikemadevs Hello, using the settings in the instruction manual it will take 103meters or approx 811grams. The structure uses the most plastic in a single print at 16.2meters 50% infill. Thanks Dan

Guys, did any of you download Greg Whitmore's split blade before it was taken down? I have another user who's printer isn't big enough to print in 1 shot? Would really appreciate the files if anyone has them? Cheers Dan

All, i've added a cable guard into the 'Thing files' with an explanation picture with the other pictures. Simple push fit ring to protect the slipring and stepper cables from the main shaft. Thanks Dan

@ Michael, that would be great a lot of people have been asking for an NEMA 17 sized turbine. I'm thinking about designing and developing a custom axial (No cogs, no direct contact) generator for the MKIII. I'm measuring the performance of the current turbine to get a reliable baseline to compare against. thanks Dan

hey Michael, it don't think it would work, I think the NEMA 17 is to big and would result in the stepper having to move outwards (vertically) and require new cogs and all sorts.

Hello all, I want your feedback, if I was to develop a MkIII wind turbine what changes would you want to see? Dan
