    I'm looking for a modeler who could model a (small) gas turbine (jet engine) for on a key chain. It is meant for give away's to our customers. If possible it would be great to have the rotor moving.

    Please visit our website for reference to our profession:

    Looking forward to your post.

    If you download a program called OpenSCAD, it's no more complicated than this bit of code:


    $fn=32;
    module blade(){
    linear_extrude(twist=-120,height=5,slices=$fn*2,center=true) square([0.5,10]);
    }
    module blades(numblades){
    deg=360/numblades;
    for (i=[0:numblades-1]) {
    rotate([0,0,deg*i])render()blade();
    }
    }
    module whole(){
    union(){
    intersection(){
    blades(5);
    rotate_extrude(center=true)translate([5,0,0])scale([1,0.3,1] )circle(r=5,center=true);
    //cylinder(r=20,h=1,center=true);
    }
    cylinder(r=2,h=5,center=true);
    }
    }
    whole();
