Filament Sensor Holder for the Anycubic I3 Mega.
Replaces the magnetic ball thing.
It is made for the new version, that have black sensor with the cable plug at the side. See photos.
Insert sensor and then insert the bracket behind, so the sensor stays in place even without filament.
Happy New Year!
I made a new version, completely new designed in Fusion360.
Fixed a few things that were not optimal. (Sensor lifting out at lower back during filament change, filament contact/friction at bottom).
I also improved the back bracket, its now made for one M3x30mm screw and nut.
But you can also print the pin and press-fit, resize the pin as needed. Print pin slow 20mm/s and low end temp.
Also now more sturdy back flaps and the viewing arch is now bigger/higher to see better.
And way nicer design !!
Prints without support, but for cleaner viewing arch i used a support in there.
