New Mexico has an arid climate and this makes it difficult to keep some plants thriving. They would enjoy some rain and fog as much as any New Mexican would. I thought a weather chamber would not only help the plant thrive but provide a bit of peace as the sound of rain is pleasant for people too.Maybe I could make it rain in a see-through chamber to provide some relief to the plant, what if I could integrate a fogger to keep the roots healthy?
After several cuts and prints the project started coming together
I 3d printed a base to hold the water, the pump, and the fogger. I also laser-cut an acrylic chamber complete with drain holes, cable guide entry/exit point and a spot for a 2" suspension tray.
I 3d printed a "rain manifold" to be glued to the top of the chamber.
I used boxes.py to generate a box and the Epilogue laser cutter to make it.Wiring the devices and testing them was not to bad as they are all related to code I already have in my library.
I assembled everything using super glue and glue gun when necessary.
Parts were tested with code one at a time and "blended" together.
