3D printing the Gravity Jet Suit

Parts of the turbine engines for the Gravity Jet Suit are made through additive manufacturing, through a type of 3D printing using sintering of powdered metal.  This process is explained in this resource.


The Gravity Jet Suit uses purely thrust from the jet engines to create lift.  This resource explains the aerodynamics of flight, including thrust, life, drag and weight for aircraft.


The Gravity Flight Suit uses kerosene as a fuel.  This resource explains the combustion of another hydrocarbon, methane, and the conditions needed for combustion of a fuel.

Energy transfer

This resource looks at energy transfer, work done, energy efficiency and Sankey diagrams, in the context of the Gravity Jet Suit.

Gas turbines

The Gravity Jet Suits use five small gas turbines to create enough lift for a human to fly.  This resource explains how the gas turbines work, and how this relates to Boyle's Law.

Human balance

A high degree of balance is required to successfully fly the Gravity Jet Suit.  This resource explains how our balance is controlled in our inner ear and vestibular system.

This suite of resources consists of informative posters, using the context of the Jet Suits, to cover a number of topics from Newton’s Laws and forces, through combustion and energy transfer, to human biology and 3D printing. 


Newton's laws

This resource looks at Newton's First and Second Laws and how they relate to the Gravity Jet Suit.

Resultant forces

There are a total of five turbine engines on the Gravity Jet Suit.  This resources uses the suit to look at resolving forces and free body diagrams.

Scientific method

This resource gives an overview of the scientific method, and includes information of biases.
