 Water vapour is produced using off-the-shelf piezoelectric transducer. Once powered, it applies voltage to a ceramic piezoelectric driver making it oscillate vertically, breaking the water into a fine mist. A good explanation of the working principles is [[https://www.quora.com/How-do-ultrasonic-humidifiers-work|available on Quora]]. Water vapour is produced using off-the-shelf piezoelectric transducer.

 The upside of working with a ready-made transducer is the integrated water level sensor, so there's one thing off the list. Unfortunately, it also comes with some tacky LEDs that need to be dealt with. I'll probably cover them up, but I recommend getting a different transducer. I might prepare a second STL for the new transducer. The upside of working with a ready-made transducer is the integrated water level sensor, so there's one thing off the list.

 A fan is needed to force the mist out, as it's heavier than air. To solve that I've modelled a fan into the bottom of the case that will blow air into the machine. In order to prevent water getting into the fan, the air duct is cane-shaped. A fan is needed to force the mist out, as it's heavier than air.
