The resin printer is the Elegoo Mars 2 Pro and I was using the standard Elegoo clear resin. I was tempted to build a custom UV curing station, but ended up ordering the Elegoo Mercury Plus 2 in 1, which I definitely recommend as it makes the post processing far easier. As mentioned in the video, none of this was sponsored/provided by Elegoo, I just saw it all on Amazon Prime and thought I'd give it a go.

(my idea is to use this to lower the comsumption of the system, but i guess it could be used to add power instead). up to you to chouse the best aplication.

  • Place the nozzles on the tips of the rotor blades. Some early helicopters had this design. It had done trouble with hit gases. Since you use cold compressed air there should nothing to be worried of. Placing nozzles on tip of the rotor will drive the rotor and save the weight of the turbine and gear.

  • I guess the nozzle on its own ejects high pressure air that spreads out evenly distributing it's momentum partially in the horizontal direction. This is the same reason rockets optimised for sea level are less efficient in a vacuum. If you had a bell on it to bring the exhaust down to 1 atmosphere it would be more efficient but I imagine that's quite hard to get right.

  • So the final version is very close to a standard impulse turbine that is commonly used in steam applications. Here's a tip. Make two more of those exact same wheels and stack them up with the first in alternating directions. Connect the first and third wheel to your shaft and hold the second (opposite direction wheel) rigid to your frame. Make sure the blades of the first and third wheel are aligned and there you go.

  • Just looking at the thrust equations: for a turbine driven propeller its thrust equation is proportional to V^2 while for the nozzle its thrust equation is proportional to just V. Turbine Driven Propeller Wins. Also in order to get more juice out of that nozzle, you would need to create the right pressure ratios, converging/diverging nozzle, etc. to expand the flow isentropically as close to the back pressure as possible for max nozzle efficiency.

  • I wonder if using a denser gas like CO2 or N2 or Argon would help? All are fairly easily attainable at a Welding supply store. Might be a good power/weight ratio test. In fact, I wonder if putting a few grams of dry ice (solid CO2) into the canister would work out well on that front. Certainly give you more than the 30s of runtime at a fairly reasonable weight penalty.

  • Interesting, it would be interesting to hook this up to a large pressure plenum and modulate the pressure as the form of velocity control. There might be some good reasons behind pressurizing the bottle to a max pressure and using a small pressure regulator to keep the max thrust a little bit lower and prolong the time of flight.

  • what about a turbine where each "blade" or "bucket" splits the airflow into two paths but the 3dprinted cross section of the blade includes a section from a tesla valve, so you take some of the incoming air and redirect it around to create a high pressure obstruction, which also pushes back pressure in the second chamber and pulls more energy out of the air slow? the problem is the time each blade is in contact with the stream is minimal, and then you have to deal with the effects it has on the rest of its journey around.. hrm
