Filament Sensor Kit
Price $57 - Available
With this sensor on your 3D printer or filament extruder you no longer have to deal with calibrating for filament diameter. The sensor is an optical micrometer which measures the diameter and adjusts the printer or extruder to produce a good print. This avoids the step of manually measuring the filament and adjusting the slicing software. Accurate to +- .02 mm.
This kit includes a populated and programmed sensor PC board, calibration rod, and LED. Required but not included are the 3D printed enclosure. To complete the kit you will need to print the enclosure, wire to your printer control board, and install the version of Marlin which supports this sensor.
See http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:454584 for further instructions on how to build out the sensor.
Each sensor kit is completely tested before we ship it to ensure it will work for your extruder or printer. We have over 100 happy customers so far.
