Just like that -- a new probe is born!

This one incorporates the latest aerospace science regarding how to plumb hoses around without getting them kinked or snapping off various hose barb fittings. More work to come.

At this point I'm suspecting that, for best air tightness, the probe "ball nose" and the shroud over the on-board barometer should probably be made at 100% infill, or maybe even farmed out to Shapeways or a similar operation.

I'm also thinking carefully about whether we should maintain the polycarbonate tube, which is strong and light and pretty and "open", versus making a 3D printed clamshell body that would be easier to "pack" with components before screwing it shut.
