This was an exercise in top-down modelling for injection molding incorporating existing components into the design. This project also allowed me to explore the fundamentals of centrifugal fan design. This fan is intended to be used to create airflow to encourage the efficient burning of fuel with a portable gasification camp stove. As such, the dimensions are kept small enough that the device can be packed with the collapsible camp stove and not impose significant extra packing requirements.
