FilaSense is an easy-to-print, easy-to-use and easy-to-mount filament runout sensor. It uses a microswitch for filament detection and can be easily mounted to 2020 or 2040 extrusions, or any other frame using the two M5 holes.
FilaSense is just a single file to print. It is small, fast to print with very few material costs.
