Team30 Micro EDF on Shapeways!

I have created a Shapeways Store to allow others to purchase my ducted fan designs I have in my account there.

The Ducted Fan cases have 4 stators specifically for use with 3 blade rotors - aiming for high eflux with minimum disruption to air flow. They are available as flanged or straight depending on your application. The motor mount excepts 12mm inrunners. Currently, only 30mm cases are listed but there will also be 25mm and 20mm cases made available soon (as seen in the image).


Next we have 30mm EDF nacelles (or pods as some call them). There are various versions here. A basic nacelle for those with 30mm EDF units already setup. A solid(seamless) unit and a split system to allow easy access to motor installation and maintenance. All nacelles have front guides for the case and rear internal guides to set the exit pipe to the correct diameter! There will also be 25mm and 20mm nacelles made available soon.


If anyone has any suggestions for any other products I could add, please let me know. I don't mind doing the design if it adds more cool products that can be made available to everyone.
e.g. I'll be designing a scale He 163 pod to add to the list. The Salamander needs it's funky shape!

More products to come as time permits.

Very nice! I like!

May I ask, have you created and used any of these 30mm versions yet?
Looks like you have the GWS 6-bladed rotor cut down to 3-blades in mind?

Shapeways does all the store stuff. The customer places the order though the Team30 store and Shapeways takes care of it all.

Slaanesh - yes, a cut down GWS is the only option for now. I had a chat with Mr. Lin last night about possible manufacture of 1mm to 1mm GWS 30mm rotor adaptors similar in design to the GWADP001 to stop these things flying off the moment the motor shaft heats up. He liked the idea and will look into it.
I haven't got my hands on the designs yet. Since shipping to here is high, I'm going to fill a box up to make it worth it.

Hmmmm when I ordered my stuff from BiM I got free shipping as long as the order was US$25+.

Now it's fixed a US$19.99?

Also I can't select polished materials. Only black or white - not the polished versions.

I'd be careful making comparisons here! Choose what you want and leave it at that.

I'm just wondering if NC defined the materials. ie. black and white plastics only and missed the polished options?

The polished plastics are very nice and very much worth the small extra dollar value and time take to create.

Also, the two orders I've made with BiM both to the value of ~US$28 had free dropship postage. This made the deal very appealing.

To order a couple 30mm housings and pay more for the postage than the product isn't very appealing.

Shapeways changed their shipping policy as of the 1st October to what you see now. The last order I placed was on 30th September - so I just scraped in on a 25buck order and free shipping. Now you see why I am filing up the box before completing my order.

"Shipping Options and Pricing
We ship worldwide by UPS. We always use this freight carrier and can not currently make any exceptions.

Cost Applicable Countries
$6.50 United States, Canada, The Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg
$9.50 All EU Countries, Switzerland, Norway, San Marino, Vatican, Andorra, Liechenstein
$19.99 Rest of the world"


If you want more material options I can turn them on. Rigid white plastic is the cheapest and I didn't think anyone would want anything else. Let me know what material choices you'd like.

What a bugger! If I would have known that I would have ordered earlier.

$6.50 to the USA is no worries for most of the market I guess and the EU is not too bad but leaves the rest of the world with pretty expensive shipping.

Can we buy directly from you then NC?

When you going to start producing and selling motors?




I'm willing to pull the trigger on PayPal for a few of your motors to use in a 30mm edf, if shipping isn't too painful from your side of the world.
