good luck, I cannot remember what mesh I used but it was fairly fine so that there was no chance of the beads being sucked up the tube, also the size of the gause (height ) was to ensure that the gauze did not get blocked and always had free airflow.

the angled edges were to try to remove the need for support and also link of saved on beads were not useful (ie without being in the useful air path)

I did think about adding a spiral to it so that the air went through / past all the beads but thought it was overkill)

each to their own, I thought it came out very well.... but then I am nearly always impressed with 3d prints

oh this was the mesh and was enough to do two of them

and the beads for two with a bit left over (not much)
