Jetson Nano Garden Stake

The Jetson Nano is lightweight and power-efficient, which means you can easily take it outdoors. This Garden Stake assembly has a place to clip in a Jetson Nano developer kit and a portable battery pack, as well as cameras and other peripherals. The pointy stake is great for holding the Nano in soft ground.

Here's a few project ideas to get started:

  • Detect and report on bugs and pests in your garden.
  • Detect poorly irrigated parts of your lawn.
  • Take it to the beach to monitor your sun exposure.
  • Use it to drive your outdoor projection mapping projects.

The Jetson Nano is not waterproof, so use on a sunny day :)

  1. Print the jetson_nano_outdoors_stake.stl at 10% infill.
  2. Print the jetson_nano_outdoors_stake_board.stl and two jetson_nano_clip.stl at 20% infill.
  3. Slide the two Jetson Nano Clips into the front of the printed board (this should be a tight fiction fit).
    • Note: The front of the board has centered slots and a rougher finish.
  4. Snap your Jetson Nano into the Clips — you should hear a nice click sound.
  5. Slide the two Battery Clips into the back of the printed board (this should be a tight fiction fit).
    • Note: The back of the board has off-centered slots and a smoother finish.
  6. Snap your Portable Battery into the Battery Clips, and plug in the Nano and other peripherals.
  7. Bolt the board to the stake using the M3 screws and washers.
  8. Stick into the ground and go!

Printer Settings

Each of these parts were printed on a Prusa i3 MK3S printer using the MK3S_MK3_0.2_Fast profile (0.2mm layer height) with PLA.


  1. The Stake was moded from this Tent Stake by mistertech.
  2. The Nano Clip and Battery Clip were derived from this 8020 Rail ATMega2560 Clip by the_digital_dentist.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
