Does anyone have experience building their own aquatic tags? We are building a GPS-LoRa telemetry system. Although all the functions are working properly, we are having trouble with design. Water almost always leaks in, even at 20m depth. We are currently 3D printing the exterior.
Anyone else face these issues? What solutions did you employ? I will be grateful for further help regarding this.

What material are your 3D prints in and what printing technology are you using. I tried printing cases for terrestrial use in PLA. Even with an epoxy coating I was getting condensation forming inside my case. I'm still not certain if it was leaking in or was coming from moist air at the time of closure but in another thread some other Wildlabs members recounted similar problems with PLA.
