This is an Out of Filament detector for the Makerbot Replicator 2 with Sailfish firmware installed. It uses the p-stop option that is only available when using sailfish firmware. Please read the following links before attempting.
Switch used is a simple OMRON ball-roller micro switch. When the filament runs out, the switch lever opens.
