Johann Kraus Smoke Machine
The most common way most cosplayer and prop maker use to add smoke to their project is using cartomizer. It’s pretty simple realy . Instead of sucking air from the top of cartomizer , we use an air pump to push the air from the bottom upwards. Video below is the first smoke machine i made using a vape cartomizer and an air pump. Enclosed, the airpump noise has decreased quite a lot.
Unlike the version using cartomizer, I used a 1.2ohm vape coil and wired it to be controlled by a relay via Arduino. Main different is, it will no longer using an air-pump but a cooling fan instead. It produced a lot more airflow to the coil.
We have volume but when using a fan , it need an open intake from the juice compartment. This means, if I bend down, the liquid could go out from the cooling fan intake hole. Im sure i can make this work anyway but im lazy . Hahaha
Introducing the Wotofo Bravo RTA. It has rebuildable coil deck and three times capacity than a cartomizer that i used. Instead of an air pump , I used a radial fan. I 3d model and printed an adapter for the fan airflow. It works perfectly. I might need to add a speed controller to the fan tho.
Sorry for the dark video. It was around 10pm when i took the video with all the lights open xD . I will make another post when i snapped better picture and video.
