BUILDING WATER ROCKET COMPONENTS WITH A 3D PRINTER
To   succeed   with   the   construction   of   a   water   rocket,   you   will   have   to   work   very   precisely   and   carefully.   Especially   some   of   the   adhesives   are   pretty   dangerous. Thus,   please   wear   gloves   when   working   with   adhesive   or   epoxy   and   don‘t   breathe   in   the   gases.   It   is   recommended   to   work   outside   whenever   toxic   gases could   develop.   The   launch   of   a   water   rocket   may   needs   permission   from   the   competent   authority,   depending   on   your   location.   You   need   the   permission   of the   landowner   if   you   launch   on   foreign   territory.   Please   wear   safety   goggles   when   pressure   testing   or   launching   your   rocket.   Keep   a   safe   distance   to   the pressurized   rocket.   We   can   not   guarantee   the   accuracy,   completeness   or   feasibility   of   any   our   tutorials.      We   are   not   responsible   for   any   damage   or   harm   on objects,   animals   or   humans.   We   do   not   guarantee   that   the   information   provided   on   this   web   site   is   complete,   accurate   and   always   current.   This   applies   also to all links cited on this website points, either directly or indirectly.

DON‘T WORRY, THERE ARE 3D PRINTSHOPS.

In   the   last   few   years,   3D   Printers   have   become   an   incredibly   powerful   tool   to   create   components.   This   is   especially   true   for Water   Rockets,   because   the   production   of   3D   printed   componnts   is   affordable,   and   they   are   light   and   water   resistant.      In cooperation   with   DLR_School_Lab   we   offer   a   selection   of   blue   prints   and   3D   printing   files   which   you   can   download   and modify. If you want to learn more about the cooperation with DLR_School_Lab, learn more here.  
YOU DON‘T HAVE A 3D PRINTER?
IT‘S YOUR CHOICE!
You   can   not   only   download   the   files   for   your   3D   printer,   but   you   can   also   download,   adjust   and   enhance    the   original blue   prints.   In   order   to   do   this,   you   have   to   install   FreeCAD ,   which   is   free    for   Windows/Mac/Linux   users.   If   you   need   help with FreeCAD, there are many tutorials available on the internet.

CHECK AND TEST YOUR COMPONENTS!
Some   of   the   3D-printed   components   available   for   download   on   this   website   are   exposed   to   high   pressure   and   loads. Although   we   offer   CAD   files   for   download,   we   cannot   quarantee   for   functionality   of   these   components,   as   there   are   many factors   during   the   manufacturing   process   we   cannot   control.   For   this   reason,   it   is   absolutely   necessary   to   test   critical components   in   a   safe   environment.   Parts   that   will   be   under   pressure(e.   g.   nozzles,   connectors   and   tornado   tubes)   should be   tested   by   filling   a   test   rocket   completely   with   water   and   pressurizing   it   behind   a   barrier.   Mechanically   movable components   such   as   those   found   in   the   parachute   system   and   the   launch   pad   should   also   be   thoroughly   tested   before use.
PodPad   is   a   simple   3D   printed   launcher.   Just   pull   the   trigger   line from   a   safe   distance   and   your   water   rocket   will   launch.   Besides the    3D    printed    components    you    will    need    some    additional materials like a garden hose, PVC pipes and a fitting coupling. 
Many   of   our   previous   water   rockets   have   relied   on   fireworks rocket   nosecones.   But   searching   for   those   nosecones   was   pretty annoying.   With   the   capabilities   of   3D   printing   we   were   finally able   to   print   perfectly   sized   nosecones.   Additionaly,   we   have engineered    nosecones    which    can    be    srewed    onto    the    bottle threads.
Water    rocket    nozzles    can    either    be    build    at    home,    bougt    or produced   with   a   3D   printer.   3D   printed   nozzles   allow   you   to customize    your    nozzle    opening    diameter    (from    4-10mm).    All nozzles     are     compatible     with     most     standard     garden     hose couplings.
Our   3D   printed   recovery   system   is   very   light   and   stable.   It   also has   no   edges   on   the   inside   to   enable   a   safe   parachute   ejection. There    are    versions    for    different    bottle    diameters    and    with tommy   timer   or   servo   activation.   Learn   more   about   it   in   the manual.
