Hello Forum,

there is a new download-project on my website. A 3d printed solar stirling engine. For building this nice little engine you need a 3d printer ( prusa & Co are fine for this job), filament, some normal hand tools and some other easy to obtain materials. You do not need a lathe or a milling machine!
On sunny days you can drive the engine by the rays of the sun. Inside you can operate it on a cup of hot tea or on the heatbed of your printer.

With the download you get a step by step construction manual with a very detailed photo documentation and description, parts lists, all sources of supply, all stl-files for printing and some video tutorials for building and operating the engine.

If you want to have a quick look, here is a video-link:


More information, pictures, videos and the download is available on my website:


Best regards

Your work on that solar stirling and the windturbine seems wonderful !

Of course you are absolutely free to sell it or do whatever you like with it.
This said I'm a bit disturbed by the fact you used the reprap name for a closed-source project : this seems unfair to me.

Most of my technical comments should be correct, but is THIS one ?
Anyway, as a rule of thumb, always double check what people write.
