Fun project! Perhaps this should be the next thing you 3D print :

:-) :-)

That's on the list of things I'd like to attempt :)

at first i thought this was for a cat to drink from haha

At first it was just to see if I could do something with the faucet in my hotel room for fun. Well it's starting to become over the top haha.

Have you considered rotating it 90 degrees so that the turbine is either facing the faucet or the front of the sink? This might make it easier to add a second motor to the other side and generate more power. Then again, a second motor might just slow it down too much.

What a fun project! I cant wait to see the final video of how well it works!

Nice project!
could you make the entrance for the water in a circle for better water flow?
or is de the upper part available for print. Thank you:)

v2 is out now to address some of those issues!
