This 3D printed pump really works!
Anyone who has ever tried to 3D print something mechanical will know that this pump is pretty impressive. Moving parts are a challenge in and of themselves, but a working mechanical device, especially something like a pump, is quite a feat.
This mini centrifugal pump is still a prototype, but it shows a lot of potential. If you want to try to improve it or use it in your own project, you can download it from Thingiverse as an open source 3D model. And now that Personal Factory 4 is up and running you can have it 3D printed with Ponoko in wide variety of materials!
