Happy 3D Printing Day
This year we’re thinking small to solve big problems. 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 this badass machine right at home by downloading the files on our Thingiverse page and following the step-by-step assembly instructions.
