Filament Width Sensor Prototype Version 3
Made by Xanics, uploaded
The printed parts posed no problem. The electronic circuit board is a bit more difficult in that I had to make a programmer and the CPU chips for the programmer was not easy to find.
A nice change I made to it, was to change the firmware to use a 1.7mm rod instead of the original rod, which I could not find in South Africa anywhere.
Unfortunately I did not see the non -commercial licence of flipper's design and I had to take the filament width sensor of my site. I had a few of these for sale to especially help the South Africans to build this sensor but yes, that is life.
You can contact me about other kits that does not have this restriction.
