Final version here: http://www.simply3d.co.nz/kwikjet

To build this boat, follow the instructions for version 2: https://www.youmagine.com/designs/3d-printed-jet-boat-v2

Print all parts from V2, but use the hull from here. Everything is compatible between version 2 and 3. Lid, nozzle, impeller etc.

This is the 3rd and final release of this project I think (4 different versions were actually made, but the first one was never released).

Hi Jotham, I'm designing a ROV and I'm looking at water jet thrusters. Yours is just right size. Is there any way to get your CAD files for just the thruster parts.

Here's my email.

So what you can do is hook up the motor cooling and the ESC cooling to the same water loop - works just fine. It does have enough pressure to push it through. I don't need a very high flow rate I found since it doesn't heat much to begin with.

Do post some pictures if you get it going! Would love to add them here with your permission.

Ok thanks, I see a few issues with that so might just do it in the 3 sections. One more thing, I see 2 spots in the back to hook up the water cooling but it looks like you need 2 inlet and 2 outlet lines. Where are the other 2?

@kyle Wenner you'll want to print it with the rear of the boat facing downward so that the nose points up as it prints.

I highly recommend you print it in sections and glue it together but as one piece should work too. Let me know how you get on.

I,m about to print this version 3 with your new hull. I want to print it complete without splitting it, what do you think is the best orientation? model looks awesome by the way.
