Updated tipping bucket, created in OpenSCAD. This version uses straight edges instead of rounded to save on plastic.
- Print the part
- Drill the hole out to fit some kind of rod, I used aileron control rod from a hobby shop threaded for about 1/2 inch from one end and smooth for the rest cut to length
- Epoxy a magnet at whatever location is convenient to trigger a reed switch
- Drill a hole in a CD spindle through the center spindle to bolt on your rod
- Add a funnel to the CD spindle's lid and point it at the center of the tipping bucket
- Connect the reed switch to a micro controller and do some math to calculate rain fall. rainfall = <# of tips> * /
