Description

This is a through-hole screw mount for a EEEkit Hygrometer (Amazon link, non-affiliate). You can use this to mount a humidity sensor for readability outside a container, but with the sensor inside.

This was designed so I could easily view the humidity inside the sealed storage container which contains my filament.

You can easily snap the hygrometer into the "outer" casing; it'll hold tight as it has tabs on the inside. Is it a perfect seal? Definitely not, but it's not bad. I printed the casing in PETG.

Included are gasket should be printed twice; these were printed in TPE, so they're a little squishy.

The Fusion 360 .f3d is included in case you need to make any modifications. I'll attach photos later, once it's installed.

Materials and methods

This was printed on a Prusa i3 MK3, using eSUN PETG for the mounts, and eSUN eLastic TPE for the gaskets. Supports should not be necessary for printing, but you may wish to have your slicer add additional walls for overhangs.
