  • Designing a 3D Printed Tesla Turbine – Part 2

    By on January 17, 2017

    Introduction This is the second installment of a two part series detailing the retrofitting of a machined Tesla Turbine with Markforged parts. In theĀ first installment, we introduced Tesla Turbines, discussed which parts lent themselves well to 3D printing, and replaced the turbine housing with a Markforged part. Now, we’ll tackle the other printed component of our turbine retrofit: the bearing
