One of the ears on the battery cover of my Amarox Wireless BBQ Meat Thermometer broke off, so I whipped up a model in FreeCAD and voila. This is an older model than what is currently available on Amazon, but someone out there might have this same model.
I suggest printing this in the orientation presented. Yes, it will require extensive supports, but it is necessary for strength so that the tabs don't break when flexed. Also, due to the small footprint in this orientation, I recommend a brim of 7mm. I printed it in PLA, but due to the fact that it will be near a barbecue grill, you might want to opt for ABS, PETG or even PLA+ might work better.
Due to either a Thingiverse bug or (more likely) shadowbanning, my models no longer show up under the [Newest] listings. If you want to see more of my models, please be sure to 'follow' me. **If you print this, it would really help if you'd post a 'make' so that others could find this model.
I am a self-proclaimed know-it-all. I will tackle any project regardless of my experience, or lack thereof. Always ready to learn something new. With over 25+ years experience in electronic repair and 10+ years experience in small engine / ATV / motorcycle repair, there is nothing I can't fix, modify or build.
Why a pepper? In case anyone is curious as to why there is a hot pepper embossed into most of my designs... My nickname is Pepper and that little pepper logo is a hell of a lot shorter than "Copyright © 2017 by Derek J.G. Tombrello" which is how I usually sign my work :)
