Filament Runout Sensor part for Raise3D N-series printers.
This part is designed to use the N-series endstop to create a sensor to detect when filament has runout.
You will need the following for this.
1 or 2 of this endstop from raise3d depending on how many sensors you want to make
for each sensor you need
1x Raise3D endstop
2x M6x7mm 8mm OD Knurled Threaded Insert
2x PC4-M6 Push-In Fittings
Each sensor will also need a cable that needs
2x JST-XHP 2 pin male plugs and matching pins.
2x wires to run from the sensor to the RUMBA board,
wiring and connectors to connect the endstops to the motion controller board.
to note: I listed as no derivatives because changes to the design could lead to it not functioning properly. If you wish to use alternate push-in fittings and threaded inserts, I will make versions for that.
further note: image is of a production model.
There is an arrow indicating filament direction. In that arrow, is a small hole that filament can fit in. This is like a reset button used to make sure the arm is in place when feeding filament into it. Both sides are detachable to make it easier to get the filament inserted.
