WeatherStation & 3D Printing: striving for seamless integration

As you might know already I am now a proud owner of a 3D printer, a Printrbot Play. In the last few weeks I have tried to master the printer and I have learned a lot in this time. It was only a matter of time to bring my two passions together and use the 3D printer to create a case for the WeatherStation. This is my first result. It is not as perfect as I want it to be but it is presentable. With the next version I’ll have to make the walls thicker, so they are less transparent.

  1. Please help: how to fix your great esp8266 (on an NodeMCU board) WEATHER station code so it compiles in the newer versions of the ARDUINO programming interface. I keep getting compile errors complaining about "drawFrame1' was not declared in this scope'. I have seen other posts on other sites saying the code only compiles in older ARDUINO GUI versions. Do you have newer code, or updated libraries I should get? Spent many hours trying to get this working.
    What should I do?
