Filament Monitor / Auto Pause Feature

Postby bcruton » Tue Aug 09, 2016 2:58 am

I would like to see an automatic pause feature when the filament runs out. The machine has the capability, we just need an add on that will pause the print when the filament runs out. It would save a lot of hassle worrying about how much filament is left on the roll.

We will developing a filament monitor currently. Not only detect out of filament but also nozzle clogging.

I can only agree, that a filament monitor would really be useful. Vicky, please make your monitor suitable to be retro fitted to existing printers rather than just fitted to new ones!

for printers with Dual extruders it would be great to have the printer switch to the second extruder when the filament monitor detects low/no filament.
