3D model description

  • made for my son, who loves to play with any kind of water outside
  • wheel is designed to spin around a stationary axle/rod. The flange parts need to rotate freely around the rod
  • axle/rod can be held up by a bucket, or with some twigs as shown in the pictures, or just placed on some stones if you play with this on a little creek
  • I glued some matching washers onto the axle to keep the water wheel fixed in axial direction
  • the wheel is light, uses little material but is still stiff enough for play purposes
  • main body consists of 2 parts
  • I prepared some axle/rod flanges for 8;10;12 mm and 1/2"; 3/8" diameters
  • parts need to be glued together
  • outer diameter roughly 185 mm, so it should fit on most build plates easily
  • have fun :D
  • model units are [mm]
