Unreasonable Rocket 3-D printing


 
Paul Breed has been working on an engine design that he can have 3-D printed.  I borrowed the attached image from his latest blog post on this project.  He had a plastic version for show-and-tell but when he got the metal version, some of the internal features (cooling ports) were plugged.  He has tweaked his design to facilitate the printing/manufacturing process.

And to think my previous post was about my problems using a low end tool to build non-functional models of toy rockets. :rolleyes:
