3Dkanjers Rain Gauge - Regenmeter
This Rain Gauge is part of a 3Dkanjers project to connect a 3D-printed object to a computer for educational purposes.
The Gauge is made in TinkerCad and printed on a Ultimaker Original. We used the Tipping Bucket part designed by Kulyk (thingiverse), to transform the rainfall into a signal. The Rain Gauge Funnel is based on the Funnel design by Anders Oberg (Tinkercad). The Gauge is connected to the computer with a Makey Makey. The program to measure the rainfall is made in Scratch: http://scratch.mit.edu/projects/30414772/
Every time the bucket is tipping the program receives a signal (spacebar) and measure the rainfall. You can use the "Calibration" slider to adjust the measurements.
