Abstract

The University of Atmospheric Research (UCAR) launched its 3D-Printed Automatic Weather Station (3D-PAWS) initiative, a project designed to collect meteorological data at a lower cost than a conventional weather station. The goal of this product was to produce a 3D-PAWS system to test the usability and reliability of the system. The problems encountered during production were documented and used to make suggestions to improve 3D-PAWS before widespread deployment to improve meteorological data coverage in currently underrepresented regions.
