Introduction: Paint Mixer
This is my paint mixer for quart cans so you don't have to use a stir stick. My dad uses it to mix wood putty.
\The ridges are to catch the paint and stir it up better.
It fits into most standard drills.
Step 1: Creating a Small Box to Make the Ridges
I had to find the right dimensions for it to catch the paint and not be to big.
If I had it to big I could only have like 3 prong mixer witch wouldn't do anyone any good.
Step 2: I Had to Make a Wing.
It was by far the hardest part because I had to get the angle right. What I had to do was go up 0.6 of an inch while also rotating 1 degree. After I did that one time I had to do it 18 times over.
Step 3: I Had to Make the Head Out of Five Wings.
I rotated the wings around a central point so they were symmetrical.
Step 4: I Had to Add a Center.
I added a center to my design so that the wings were connected so that when it prints it does't fall apart.
Step 5: I Added a Pole to Attach to the Drill.
I added a pole to attach to the drill that is hexagonal so that it has more stability it is 6 inches tall.
