## Introduction: Using TinkerCAD to a Make a Jet Engine ! (make It Move)

Hello guys !

When I saw the TinkerCAD 'make it move contest', I thought to myself, "what moves more than a jet engine"!

So, instantly I started designing the engine, then I started to record it.

It's an instructable on how to make a jet engine. It is not a working jet engine (it does not work on jet fuel) but it has ball bearings inside and rotates when connected to a motor.

Things you'll need:

• A laptop with a browser and any social media account.

Pretty much that's it!

## Step 1: Basic Controls

Things to know:

• 'd' for bringing an object to 0 mm level
• 'm' to mirror'l' to align
• right click and drag to move around
• scroll in and scroll out to zoom in and out

Some shortcuts:

• ctrl+g = group
• ctrl + shift + g = ungroup
• ctrl+c = copy
• ctrl+v=paste
• ctrl+x=cut

## Step 3: Making the Engine's Cover and the Turbine Housing

The engine's cover is the iconic hollow cylindrical shape which we recognize the second we look at it.

## Step 4: Making the Ball Bearing Housing

The Ball bearing housing has a diameter a bit less than the turbine housing so that it fits inside flush.

## Step 5: Making the Turbine/fans and the Shaft

The turbine is basically series of blades in a specific angle arranged in a circular manner.

## Step 6: Scaling All the Parts Up and Assembly (part-1)

When I imported the .stl file of the ball bearing into my TinkerCAD, the ball bearing looks line a giant in front of it.

So, I decided to scale all the parts up.

## Step 7: Assembly - Part 2

I have made most use of the 'align' function in TinkerCAD. All parts prepared previously fits together like jigsaw puzzle.

## Step 8: Done!

It looks amazing !

It was really fun making the project.

Hope you enjoyed it and learnt something from it.
