2018-09-22 - V.5 with cable management
added support (6 holes) for cable ties so that the cables don't just float in the air ...
2018-09-15 - V.5
2nd hole, near the extruder was enlarged due to some compatibility issues reported by one user. I personally use V.4, fits like a glove on my extruder/tevo !

I have made some structural adjustments to increase body strength.
This is a simplificated version of this ( https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3046489 ) filament sensor.
See the "thing" in action : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jN_g3Evhcc !
Following parts needed :
1x KW12-3 PCB switch
2x M3 x 20 screws
2x M3 nuts (optional)
If needed you should replace the extruder M3 screws with ones about 1.5-2 mm longer.
Visit dvilleneuve's page and see wiring video and instructions for the KW12-3 PCB switch.
Marlin mods :
