3D Printed Jet EngineMost makers at some point in their life have the urge to make a replica jet engine, or given half a chance, a real jet engine! We found a design for one that you can print off if you are lucky enough to own a 3D printer.

Gerry Hamilton from New Zealand designed and made his very own engine using a UP plus printer, and has uploaded the source files on Thingiverse so anyone can have a go at making their own working, compressed air powered jet engine.
Although the source files are available on Thingiverse, there are no real instructions on how to build the machine. However, another Thingiverse user has had a go at building the engine and has created a build log so you can see how it is put together.
