3d Print your own Stevenson Screen !

If you happen to have a 3D printer that needs some exercise you can now print the parts of a radiation shield for the Baro-Hyg sensor yourself.

Phillip Starbuck, a user of the weather station, has  designed two variations of the “upside down dinner plate” variety of Stevenson screen.  Version A incorporates a little fan for forced air aspiration while version B relies on the natural draft.   Both can be mounted on a pipe, or hung from a bracket, or as in my case with a string attached to the eves on the corner of my house.  The string mount so far has prevented any bugs from getting inside and making themselves a home.  I found  that the design works very well, even without a fan.

Check it out for yourself, you find the STL files for your 3D printer on :
