Abstract

The advent of 3D printing and Arduino programming has opened up a new world for hobbyists, entrepreneurs, engineers, and tinkerers. It is now possible to use such technology to solve big problems at relatively low cost. There has long been a need for better horticultural instrumentation for use in both commercial and research settings. These recent technological developments have therefore opened up the possibilities for solving this problem even permitting data collection to render 3D models of trees combining data from a range of instruments.
