We proudly present the complete design of the X-Plorer 1! After two years of hard work of 46 engineering students, JetX's first turbofan engine design has now been finalised.
Reaching this stage is of great importance for the organisation, as the process has been challenging on many different levels. Designing a sub-scale engine that obeys the theoretical models developed as closely as possible has taken considerable resources and adjusting all parameter for printability has offered an all-round engine development experience for everyone involved.
In the meantime, we keep pushing the boundaries and capabilities of our design. 12 new members joined the team in early October and will work with their respective teams to optimise the engine design and implement improved or more advanced features in the X-Plorer 2.
The second engine of the X-Plorer family will be optimised in terms of ease of assembly and reliability in the next couple of months and then further improved in terms of performance, based on testing results from the X-Plorer 1.
Let us know what you think of our design and make sure you stay tuned for production updates as well as more content from the current engine!
