3D Printed Helical Satcom Feed

Awesome idea! Way to go on this design. I’ve somewhat thought about 3D printing antennas… more from the fractal antenna design influence most recently as well as with microwaves lenses I’ve noted somewhere on HaD. Neato… I just wound my first 2.4Ghz dual helical with house wiring using Andrew McNeil’s templates he has provided on his youtube.com videos describing antennas on this site and others (http://andrew-mcneil.com/ ). I would provide his YT links, though I can’t access Google, FB or YT sites on this computer. A spiral conical design with a 3D printed form would be great like in this article regarding the gentleman who made this form and antenna. I even wonder the different materials that could be impregnated or blended uniformly into the polymers to affect the antenna resonant characteristics. Maybe more from an axial design with the blends like ferrite for example ...
