Had to refill my BRS refillable DI cartridge and figured there had to be a better way. Designed up a funnel and a packing tool. it works great in the neck of the cartridge but deeper down if you push too hard it forces some of the resin beads up and around edge. I found that giving it a few sharp whacks works better than constant pressure to pack it tight. Hope this helps!
I have printed a half dozen assorted custom funnels for my reef tank, cars and motorcycles. Nothing like a funnel sized for the specific task at hand.

Has anyone else printed this one? I tried this with some Noctua NF-R8 fans (80x80x25) and they were hitting the curve on the back before they were deep enough to line up the screw holes.

I think it was probably designed for 15mm deep fans, which isn't really the standard size - and I didn't see mentioned.

Did you see the link to the fan he used? It doesn't look like the traditional boxy computer fan. The edges seem to be able to accommodate the curve and squeeze inside.

I found this one today in my searches. It wasn't in the archive yet so I have added it now.

I made a Mason Jar band that actually works; I actually needed a vacuum chamber. I tried a few designs posted on Thingiverse and what not, but all of them failed, so I measured the pitch etc. and made one that works. I added a few different lid styles so you can use them for dosing pump containers, media reactors, CO2 scrubbers etc.. You could make a thumper for a moonshine still out of one also. Here is the link. I have a whole bunch of other stuff including black box mods, cooling fans etc.. Link https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4597046/files
