The all new Titmouse V2, a revolution in cloud connected spaceship shaped birdhouse technology
The Titmouse V2 advanced technology allows you to monitor the temperature and humidity levels inside of your baby bird sanctuary from the comfort of your own house.
The Titmouse V2 or TMV2 features sturdy modular 3d printed abs construction fastened with heat-set inserts and clip in place battery mounting technology allowing flexibility to upgrade electronic housings and ease of use for rapid battery swapping. The Kerbal styled parachute top is removable to allow for easy cleaning between roosting seasons.
The TMV2 is scaled to accommodate tufted titmouse birds or any bird requiring a 4 inch diameter floor, 6 inch entrance height and 1 1/4 inch entrance. Mount at 8.5 foot above ground for optimal Titmouse use.
The TMV2 is designed for simple minimal support abs 3d printing and fits within a 233 mm x 232 mm x 203 mm build platform. The main body prints with the heat shield, perch, porthole, escape and landing rockomax 24-77 engines and hypersonic grid fins separate allowing for selection of individually colored abs for individual components and faster and simpler fabrication with minimal overhangs requiring support.
See attached drawings for color painting guide, detailed bill of materials and assembly instructions. The case parts and main body should print with out support on most 3d printers. Smaller printers may need to split the heat shield and main body into multiple parts. Print the parts that attach to the main body and the heat shield with support turned on. Pause the main body print 1/3 of the way through and fill base with sand or other material for better center of gravity and stability. Alternatively use hook and loop tape fasteners to mount heat shield to post. Fins can be glued in place up or down.
Thanks for checking out my project and enjoy. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have in the comments section.
