Step 1: Design the Main Body of the Rain Collector

To design the main body of the rain collector, all you have to do is make a tube, then you add a bottom to it, you can also add markings to show how much water has been collected

Step 2: Design the Funnel

Similar to the last step, you need to make a tube wide enough to fit into the main body, however remember to add a lip so that it doesn't fall to the bottom, in the center of the tube add a funnel.

Step 3: Print the Rain Gauge

After you have done all of this you can print out the rain gauge.
