3D Printed Custom Gardena Water Rocket Nozzles

Our latest video introduces a new method for making Gardena (Garden Hose Quick Release) Nozzles for Water Rockets which we have been experimenting with over the past few years. What we have been doing is designing and testing various Water Rocket components that can be 3D printed. We're really impressed with the quality and durability of these parts, and we're ready to share what we have learned about 3D printing with our friends in the Water Rocket Community. We hope that as 3D printers become commonplace, that some of our work will be helpful to others.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of the 3D Printer is in the time it saves. There was a time when it could take 30 or 40 minutes to make a single nozzle, and so if we were making multiple rockets or spare parts, it could take a whole day of work. With the 3D printer we just punch in that we want 6 identical copies and go away to work on something else (or sleep). We return later and collect 6 perfect and identical parts! It's amazing!
