The 3d Printed Solar Stirling Engine

The 3d printed solar stirling engine is really nice to print and easy to build. In addition to a 3D printer it takes only a few simple hand tools to build it. Equipment such as a lathe or a milling machine are not needed! All materials are commercially available and easy to obtain.

In sunny weather, the stirling engine can be driven directly by the sun rays. On less sunny days reflector mirrors can be mounted to increase the efficiency enormously. Without sunlight, in the dark or indoors, the stirling engine can also be operated. For example, on a cup of hot tea, or on the heatbed of your 3d printer.
