Motor Purchased and Mount Underway

A project log for 3D Printed Axial Compressor

An axial compressor that is designed to be produced inexpensively by the daily hobbyist

So I pulled the trigger and purchased a brushless motor with an ESC. This one to be specific. This one "should" be able to spin at 30k with a 2S LiPo under the weight of the rotors.

So now I'm designing and printing the mounts and stands for the compressor and motor so I can run it safely.

As always, I'll try and keep y'all updated as I go along.

I was looking for some compressor to feed my Tesla turbine project (still on paper) and when I found this I was like a "Wow I need this" :)

I'm quite newbie with 3D printing so I wanted to ask you for 3d print parameters like layer height, infill and if I should print it with support and/or adhesion plate.

Thank you in advance for reply

so, what happened?  Ive got a cnc mill, about to have 4th/5th axis capabilities, already bought some aluminum.  I was lurking, waiting for the it melted post to go cut it out of aluminum and send you the results :). Not to discourage the casting idea at all, just figured I'd try it the cnc way!  (Because who doesn't want a turbine sitting on their desk?! :D
