It really depends on what type of cooling fan you want to use. Most cooling fans I've seen tend to have a slower rpm than what is needed. Another member suggested using a squirrel cage fan. I'm fairly certain that type of cooling fan might work well but it won't fit the dimensions of my current model. If you would like to try to use a squirrel fan you are welcome to customize my source models to your specific needs.
Je suis d'accord. Je suis actuellement à la recherche d'un moteur meilleur avec un régime supérieur. Un moteur à turbine RC serait plus efficace. I agree. I am currently looking for a better motor with a higher rpm. A RC turbine engine would be more effective.
In my version 2 I hope to 3d print the fan.

You are right. I will add that to my version 2. Thanks

This is insanely cool! I've wanted to try to make something similar to this this but never knew where to start or if it would even work. Well done!
Good idea. My problem would be getting it all to fit into the small enclosure. I do agree that an intake fan would be very beneficial. ill look and see if I can find something small that can fit. Thanks!
I've added an image showing all dimensions in inches. Please let me know if there is some more information you would like to see in the diagrams.
Sorry. I did something wrong when I converted the files. I'll have to double check the dimensions. I'll let you know when they're up.
Sorry. I did something wrong when I converted the files. I'll have to double check the dimensions. I did make my model in inches. I had to scale up my model too but off the top of my head your dimensions seem a little large. Im going to update my directions at the bottom. I'll let you know when they're up.
Great idea! I will look into it.
Im not sure currently where to find one. I will be looking around.
Very cool! Unfortunately your photo doesn't seem to be working. I watched the video and really like how sleek yours looks.
Their product definitely has better airflow and is way better engineered still but my design is considerably cheeper to make. Hopefully with a better fan I will achieve a competitive airflow.
Turns out I hit creative gold! I did forget to upload the files and they will be added shortly. Thanks for your feedback.
Thanks! I'm really happy how this project turned out!
Very interesting stuff! I will be taking fluid dynamics as part of my college curriculum soon. I really enjoyed reading through the article you linked about Dyson. Thanks!
Dyson's bladeless fans blow me away. Its really interesting how complex the design process was for something that is very simple in theory. A squirrel cage fan would work very well but unfortunately it wont fit the dimensions of my current model. It only has a 2" diameter worth of space in the base. I will definitely play around with some model ideas. I was planning on testing a simple hobby motor with my computer fan blades to see if theres a dramatic change in airflow. Dyson uses an impeller to create a very impressive airflow in their products.
