Shop air is applied to this Tesla (boundary layer, or bladeless) turbine and the shaft can be seen spinning.

The turbine was printed in one piece (including the bearings, rotor, disks, etc) on a Z-Corp 3D printer. Cyanoacrylate ("super glue") was used an an infiltrant to seal and harden the print.

CAD by Kenny Cheung, design and video by Amy Sun. Printed and filmed at the MIT Center for Bits and Atoms in support of fablab research.
