External Dry Box Adapter

Postby mechovation » Wed Aug 12, 2020 6:34 pm

I would like to design an adapter to allow PTFE tubing to connect an external dry box to the E2 by holding a connector in line with the Filament Sensor.

Would it be possible to obtain 3D CAD files of the filament spool chamber and filament sensor?

In return I'd share my design with the community.

Thanks,

Hi

On mine, I removed the alu block to machine a M5 thread so I can put a tube connector from my external filament box. The one I used has a small inside hole so it help to guide the filament in the sensor and to the internal tube during loading.

Remain the question if I cut a square in the door to close the door during operation.

Did you have to drill the hole before tapping, or is it sized close enough for an M5 tap?

I had to drill, taking care of going down only the needed depth. Tried without but it is just a no go.
