If anyone is interested, I've created a remix that lets you tweak OpenSCAD to get a magnet holder suitable for whatever fan you have lying around.


I have been trying to build something similar but I'm having problems in getting a good vortex. The fan is equipped with strong enough magnets like yours (earth magnets). The fan speeds up to a good speed but the moment the fan has the resistance from the magnet (in the water), the fan clearly turns much much slower. Which results in a poor vortex in a 3liter flask. Any idea what kind of fan I can try out? I tried out 80mm fans and 120mm fans (around 0,1 to 0,5 amps 12v).

Kind regards,


Hey I saw your thing and I like it. I also noticed there wasn't a group on Thingiverse dedicated to things for home-brewing related activities so I made one! I just wanted to see if you wanted to join and add your thing to it so we can develop a community of brewers with printers.


Hope all is well!
