I need to get back to my jetpack build and one of my hangups is the thruster ball. I was messing around with some designs for a 3D printed part for this and was wondering if there would be any interest here. It would be based on the WOF templates and would be made to receive 3/4" PVC (outer diameter of 1.05") through the entire ball. It would also be hollow to keep cost and weight down.
Cost would likely around $30 per ball through shapeways for a good, durable, unpolished plastic. It would be a few bucks more per ball for the polishing. I just wanted to know if people A) were interested and B) thought that would be worth it for their builds. I originally built up the entire thruster assembly in CAD, but that got WAY out of hand cost-wise. Thanks!
