Update 21/07/2015

Makerbot Version (tallest part now < 150mm) available. We've splitted the upper part and did a snap-fit connection. For taller cans and bottles there is also now a part to freely extend your chiller by 50mm for each extenstion element.

Imagine to cool down your drinks only with the power of wind and water. In optimal circumstances you can cool down your drinks for some degrees. We've been inspired by different theories, so you can use this chiller for different uses: Classical use with a wet sock and wind or the freeze option with ice, water and salt. We'll explain shortly all in the description and also put some pictures and movies to this project. Until now there is a version for RedBull cans (250ml, 355ml, 12fl oz) and for LemonSoda. Feel free to scale the parts for your needs :)

We optimised the designed the design to have always enough water, catching the wind as easy as possible and having a cool gadget to take anywhere.



Printing Info
The parts are optimised to print with a wall thickness of 0.8mm and an infill 20 - 30% depending on slicer.
No supports necessary. Depending on printer a brim for better adhesion is recommended.

If the bottom part tends to leak, just put some glue/silicone in a thin film inside of the part so it will be sealed.
Happy cool printing :)

how much water does it use and where does the water go in what part, does anyone know where does the sock go

@jjuasjjuas2: I believe what's happening here is evaporative cooling. The sock acts as an easy-to-source wick that will continue to pull the water from the lower basin as it evaporates from the top. This kind of cooling has been around for a very long time, and is surprisingly efficient! Check out more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evaporative_cooler

Does it really need a sock?
