ESP8266, ThirsDee: 3D printed casing arrived

Do you like this post? Writing posts, developing libraries and programming online font creators is actually hard work. I order most of my electronics from a Chinese website called Banggood. It is save and the items usually arrive in good quality. With every order you do there by following this link you are supporting the blog. Thank you!

This was my first take ever at designing something for a 3D printer. Since I didn’t have a 3D printer available with a big enough printing area I ordered it online at Sculpteo.com. And only a few days after my order I received a nice little package from France today. Tada, the cover for Thirsdee, the intelligent plant helper! As you can see from the fotos, the load cell fits nicely onto the box inside. There is even enough space for an ESP8266, the HX711 and maybe even a LiPo. The capacity of that LiPo is pretty small…

Now I need just some solering time;-)
