Case parts to build a Comfort Monitoring Station CoMoS.
Find the whole story and instructions here:
The main CoMoS case is assembled from three parts: case body, top, and bottom part. Optional: a small rectangle case and lid for a micro SD card reader is included in the files. It's meant for the stand-alone version of CoMoS. Please see the instructable for further info.
Color selection of white filament for case body and top part, and transparent for bottom part is highly recommended to ensure the correct function. The case should not heat up too much in direct sunlight and the bottom part should allow LED illumination.
Done in SketchUp, .skp files attached.
The top and bottom parts are designed to press-fit the body part with -0.1 mm. However, depending on your printer setup and calibration, you might try printing the top and bottom part at 99 % for easier fit.

Raft or Brim recommended only for the case body part, to prevent it from toppling over when printing high parts.
Prints nicely with PLA, use white filament for case body and top part, and transparent filament for the bottom part!
Case wholes print without support.
The optional micro SD card reader case might need support enabled to print nicely.
Prints as well in 0.3 mm resolution, while the pictures show a 0.15 mm layer version for smoother surface.
Tested settings on Anet A8:
- wall thickness: 1.2 mm
- printing temperature: 200 °C for PLA
- plate temperature: 60 °C
- print speed: 60 mm/s
- cooling enabled: 70 % at height 7 mm
- print time: 4 h for all three parts at 0.3 mm
