Low cost solar radiation shield

The solar radiation shield is a low cost DIY device to protect temperature, relative humidity and other sensors from the weather, while shielding them from the sun for highest accuracy. Provided here are instructions and files. It require some CNC machinig, but then it could be assembled in minutes. It is made from plant pot saucers.

Toothbrush stand

I designed simple two pice toothbrush stand for 8 brushes. In our large family it is sometimes hard to track the toothbrushes only by color. I decided to put this issue in order by ordering the brushes with two simple 3D printed parts. Front one has magnets for removing from the shelf when needed due to cleaning.

Model files are in this file: STEP, PARASOLID and Solidworks

Two pieces for 3D printing

Two magnets (12mm dia, 2mm thick) are attached with epoxy into front holder. Add two more magnets and attach with epoxy to the uderside of the shelf as shown in the first picture.After curing/drying the holder can be removed and cleaned.

Rear holder is attached with two side self adhesive.

RAK811 3D model and plastic housing

There was no3D model for RAK811 breakout board with GPS tracker, so I made it from the drawings. I added plastic housing to be used with velcro straps. I prepared two models, one with only RAK811 and small LiPo battery and second one, 4mm higher with enough space for additional PCB with custom electronics. Enjoy.

Higher version with additional PCB

Lower version without additional PCB

Base is same for both versions.
