Blow 14,000 Bubbles Per Minute with This 3D Printed ‘Bubble Bucket’

One such creation that I recently discovered was for a device called the Bubble Bucket. Designed by a man who goes by the name “Scratchhax,” it is capable of creating a plethora of bubbles which can engulf an entire yard. Certainly you’ve seen bubble machines before, but more than likely you haven’t seen one quite as impressive as this one.


“The idea [for the Bubble Bucket] had two origins; the first one being that my kids and I just really enjoy having a bubble machine to play with when the weather is nice,” Scratchhax tells “The second reason was from my Wife working with special needs children and wanting to use the idea of a bubble machine, hooked to a switch that they could control regardless of physical ability as a re-enforcer.”

It essentially is a modified chain drive for a motorcycle, except, rather than helping the wheels of a bike turn, it is mounted vertically into a bucket with its bottom half submerged into bubble solution. When the chain rotates, it brings the 3D printed wands up and out of the solution, where a fan or other method of air hits the wands, causing the bubbles to form.


The wands, chain, sprockets, hinge pins and motor housing are all 3D printed, using a 4mm shaft coupler to join the motor to the drive sprocket, a 60RPM gear head motor to drive everything and aluminum extrusion to hold everything in the bucket.Depending on just how windy of a day it is, or how much air is directed toward the wands, we are told the machine has the ability to blow between 2,000 and 14,000 bubbles per minute.
