Happy 3D Printing Day! Steam turbines have already proven to be pivotal in spreading electricity to virtually every home and business. Now, scientists at GE Global Research are working to shrink the machine to fit inside the palm of your hand. If successful, these miniaturized steam turbines could reduce the cost of water desalination by as much as 20 percent - a big step towards increasing access to clean drinking water globally.
Build your own mini steam turbine right at home. The model turbine, made by designer Patrick Saville, includes 12 individual components and takes roughly 12 hours to print in full. Download the files here and share your creation.

We recommend you print at these specifications: a 20% fill, 2 perimeters (shells) and .12mm layer height.
