Swivel Nozzle for Jet Engine, 3 Bearing Type, [Phase 1]

3D model description

This is the Swivel Nozzle called 3 Bearing Swivel Nozzle (3BSN) for Jet Engine for the recent STOL Fighter.
For STOL, 3 Lifting Forces are used as follows;
[Front] “Lifting Fan Unit” driven by Engine.
[Sides] “Bleed Air Ducts” bleeding from Engine Compressor.
[Rear] “3 Bearing Swivel Nozzle” directed Engine Exhaust. --- ●This Model
Unfortunately I never see the actual unit, then this is designed only my imagination.
Swivel Nozzle for Jet Engine, 3 Bearing Type

This model was designed in order to understand what the elements are required and how to move to get STOL position.

A. Design points:
This model consists of 4 Phases to get my Target Model.
- Phase 1 - Basic Model. Each BRG can be turned individually by Knob. ●
- Phase 2 - #2 & 3 BRGs are geared to synchronize and can be turned by 2 Hands.
- Phase 3 - All BRGs are connected with Gearbox and can be turned by Single Knob.
- Phase 4 - Phase 4 + Additional GB. This is my Target Model to turn Single Lever.

[Note] For Phase 2~4 Model, Proto type model was made, but I am still considering improvement to absorb the big movement of #2 & 3 BRG Gear Shaft Axis.
These will be uploaded in near future.

B. Assembly Manual (PDF format, total 13 pages)
The detail assembly manual including "Parts-List", "After printing treatment" and "Assembly procedure" are prepared based on "Standard Skill (Filing, Drilling, Tapping and painting)".
