Digital Thermometer Mount

This is a mount for a digital thermometer that I use to monitor the temperature inside the build chamber of my printer. It can be used for any application where you want to mount one of these digital thermometer modules.

Description

I often print with ABS which requires a warm print chamber to prevent delamination and warping. I have found that getting the chamber to at least 45C does the job, but how do you know when it's 45C? I ordered this:

digital thermometer module from Amazon for $6 and then shortened the cable to the thermistor.

I designed two different mounts, one of which I printed and used.  I attach it to my printer using magnetic tape, but you can use velcro tape or screws.

I printed with ABS in 0.25 mm layers, 20 % infill, no brim/raft.
