MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
My freezer stops working every once in a while, so I made this to alert me when it happens.
The stl files are just an enclosure for a raspberry pi zero, and a holder for a DS18B20 temperature sensor. I don't plan on including tutorials for setting it up, however my code is on github, and I've linked to some resources there: https://github.com/jrucker2004/freezer_temp_alert
The enclosure and sensor holder are meant to be partially printed, and paused so magnets can be inserted into the print before the print continues. I used the small round magnets from harbor freight.
Things you'll need:
A raspberry pi zero w
A power supply for the pi
Four screws to hold the pi in the enclosure (I used 4-40 x 3/16")
Remember to come back and post what you've printed as Make.
It's good for the designer and the community (that means you)!
