This is for a Costco Acurite 5-in-1 weather station, that I lost the base for (I had wall-mounted it for a while). Connecting this via USB to a raspberry pi, enables weewx to gather data and publish a web page, and upload to wunderground.com.
So, I thought, why not build a new stand that I can attach an rpi to?
I used this for the RPI (chopping off the PCI slot parts), and build everything else from scratch: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3607833
Also has a cutout for a zip tie, for cable management. It's 1/2 the height of the base, so the zip tie fills in the gap and allows for sitting flush.
For this particular application, the slick plastic didn't hold the acrylic surround of the weather station (also the slot was too wide), so I applied round rubber feet to each side. It now slides in and fits snugly, without moving.
Could also be used for:
1) building a live picture frame
2) tablet + rpi stand?
3) laughing at me
