Introduction: 3D Printed Fishing Weights
This project was developed under a brief for my A2 coursework, I
designed fishing weights with a focus on 3D printing manufacture to accommodate a small cheap thermometer+ housing. The thermometer (similar http://temperature-indicators.co.uk/articles/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/image004.gif)
Is used to measure the temperature by the fishermen in a citizen science based feasibility test. To try and monitor the near shore marine environment around the UK. All files will be supplied to modify and develop for whatever purpose you have. It would be interesting to try and create other pieces of rig equipment that measures the temperature with a similar device (like lures and floats). The feasibility is that fishermen use the thermometer in combination with an app and their smartphone (gps in the smartphone dates and locates it). The data gets sent off for processing and they get to know when new seasons of fish are likely to move into their area. Whilst provide scientists valuable data regarding the well being of the environment.
