Inventory for your own Makerspace

You can also make an IOT Micro Weather Station either using Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Please visit Invitation: IOT Micro Weather Station

Some other innovative and interesting projects are building DIY Lab Instruments, We will be posting soon about them. Meanwhile for lab instruments you can also visit the following links:

Nice to know about that you are an incharge of ATL of your school, it boost me to write again.

I would like to encourage you , and your students to make an IOT Weather Station and Deploy it at the top of your school building and record the weather data. I have already shared link for it.

Building an IOT Micro weather Station will help students to explore and implement the concepts of mathematics and physics, brainstorming on design thinking, reading sensors and doing calibration, making hardware (electronics), 3D designing & 3D printing, writing code (software), Internet of Things (IOT) and analysis of data.

Please visit the following link to watch our deployed weather station and dashboard where it is publishing its data:

I hope you will find this project interesting and will look forward for your involvement in the project.

For any question, feel free to ask.

I am trying to imagine if every ATL will have one IoT microweather station. What a day that will be.

That is a super idea @G_N
I will make one . But have to procure the components that take time.

Please give a link where you gave the cost etc. Without link given to us, it is like me talking to you in Swahili!

Just go through the Invitation: IOT Micro Weather Station

For publishing data we are using thingsboard (an open source IOT platform), hosted it on our server as iot.metastudio.org. When you finish the task 1 of IoT Micro Weather Station: Temperature and Humidity, we will be providing you an account on our it server, where you can create your own dashboard and visualise the data.

For creating dashboard and publishing the data on it, links are provided in the project.

Happy exploring and Making! :smiley::+1:

I am wanting to make this weather station I do have essential tools and components listed in the bill of materials but not 3d printer what can be done

@Kushagramathur You can try out using simple plastic objects around us. Check out the weather station thread by @Farhan here.

Also, depending on where you are located, you ought to easily find a local laser cutting service - they don’t cost a lot. If you can do the design, an enclosure can be laser cut from acrylic sheets (3mm / 5mm / 6mm thick) for quite cheap

thank you for the help i know how to design and we have 3d printer in our school but currently due to covid we are not going school.

3D printer is not a necessity for most projects. We can opt for several jugad ideas from what we have.

yes thanks will definately try

Nice. It is very useful for doing new projects.:+1:t3::ok_hand:t3:

You can cut acrylic with an acrylic cutter. It costs Rs.10-20. You can also use a craft knife.
Bending is equally easy. Use a candle to heat the line at which you want a bend using a to and fro motion. When the piece begins to droop hold against a right angle edge like a table or a stack of of wood blocks or books and bend.
Take a look at this about bending acrylic https://metastudio.org/t/invitation-building-a-digital-microscope-using-a-webcam/260/40?u=jtd

Laser cut enclosures can be made quickly, and for a very low cost. I always try to avoid 3D printing if I can get away with the laser.

Here’s a laser cut Ras-Pi case which uses snap locking (this is for the very first Pi)

Here’s a more typical tabbed box enclosure cut from MDF

You can also make interesting Box designs. Here’s one with integrated hinges

And if you can get the living hinge parameters dialled correct, then the designs turn out pretty nice too
