Re: 3D printed 400mm EDF project

I will make more attempt to balance the next one yes. I will probably do it by sanding.

Re: 3D printed 400mm EDF project

I think 3D printed blades can work so long as I stop them from hitting the duct wall.

Re: 3D printed 400mm EDF project

It needs some more work before I can put it on an EV.

Re: 3D printed 400mm EDF project

Here is a pic of a "segmented" stator, which allows each stator-tooth to be wound individually before the stator is assembled, which can increase copper-fill, and the speed at which robotic assemblers can wind the coils. https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/55b509dfe4b078a4338fbd...

Re: 3D printed 400mm EDF project

400mm! I know nothing about turbines but they do look good. Great work, what printer are you using and how many parts are in that build as shown? Hi thank you! I use a Creality CR-20 printer to print the parts in PETG. There are 62 parts in the build. How do you like that printer? I assume the impe...

Re: Suggested battery capacity for 30 min flight?

That is correct. I do realize that if l lost power, that unlike an airplane, l would drop like a rock, so yes, l will have battery percentage available to view, during flight. Flying above 5 m is prohibited! And you should do a lot of remote testing with bags of sand before you even put your foot i...

Re: 3D printed 400mm EDF project

Well I'll reply back. This is awesome. great job. Could you put into the text the performance you have seen so far? It's harder for me to tease out the values on the gauges at work with no headphones. Hi, thanks for your interest! All of the data is summarised at the end of my videos. In the first ...

3D printed 400mm EDF project

I am working on a project to 3D print a large EDF (electric ducted fan). Currently there are no specific applications but I have VTOL in mind. That's why it is large for better disc loading and the pitch is low for better static performance. However changing the blades to a higher pitch for forward ...
