CAD Assembly

The soil sensor is secured to the sensor plate with screws. The soil plate is mounted to the planter cup with machine screws. The PyPortal Titano is secured to the screen cover with screws. The screen cover is attached to the face plate with screws. The planter cup is installed to the enclosure with snap fits. A drip tray snap fits over the bottom of the planter cup. An open cover snap fits over the back of case.

Design Source Files

The project assembly was designed in Fusion 360. This can be downloaded in different formats like STEP, SAT and more. Electronic components like Adafruit's board, displays, connectors and more can be downloaded from the Adafruit CAD parts GitHub Repo.

Slicing Parts

No supports are required. Slice with setting for PLA material. 

The parts were sliced using CURA using the slice settings below.

  • PLA filament 220c extruder
  • 0.2 layer height
  • 10% gyroid infill
  • 60mm/s print speed
  • 60c heated bed
