DHT11 Sensor Enclosure for Reptile habitats. It's a basic design that can be easily modified by any beginner. The backing is flattened to possibly use glue to hold in place against a glass enclosure or in the future for me to print a mounting bracket. I was searching for a good sensor enclosure to use in a reptile habitat to control a custom misting system, but i couldn't find anything small or basic enough to protect the sensor from an onslaught of water. It may not be waterproof, but it will provide a basic level of protection from directly hitting the sensor with water.

Top is printed with supports, bottom prints without anything. No Rafts needed.
Sanding of glue able surfaces is suggested to ensure strength of bond and reduce direct moisture entry.
How I Designed This
Designing for Reptile Habitat
I created this from scratch using SketchUp and exported as an STL. I crafted this using basic dimensions from the sensor and simple lines to create the 2x portions of the enclosure. I was going to try to hone in the gap between the bottom plate's holder so it snuggly holds the DHT11 sensor, but i'd figure everything has to be glued together. Why not the sensor! Then i made vent slots to protect the sensor from moisture that will be coming from my misting system. I'm tinkering currently with the small circle cut out on the top of the enclosure to allow the sensor wire to pass through.....may be a bit too cramped.
