The portable environmental monitor is finalist in both categories of the Hackaday Project, Best Product and the GrandPrize but the development doesn’t stop here. We’ve managed to put together a complex piece of equipment that also has an appealing design. One thing missing was a proper bezel to protect the LCD and to hide the bottom connector. A custom 3D-printed component by Ovidiu, the designer of Lighty, did the trick and now uRadMonitor looks more professional than ever.

Very nice! Looks great with the edges hidden and protected. It really needed something protecting the screen from damage given the rest of the unit is rather rugged.

Are you going to look at having it injection moulded or stick with the 3D printing for production?
