ESP8266, ThirsDee: 3D printed casing arrived

Do you like this post? A regular project like the PlaneSpotter Color takes many hours of my free time to develop and maintain. Would you offer me a beer for my hard work if I was your neighbour? Modern technology called teleportation makes it easy to send me a beer. Just click here. 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 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;-)
