Add 'filament sensor' function from door sensor?

Post by Gouldeyecandy_3D » Wed Mar 16, 2016 9:54 am

Hello!

I am just about to pull the trigger on an Up! Box, and I just had a question... I was looking through the discussions and couldn't find anything about a mod that created a 'filament sensor function'?

In a review on Youtube, Maker's Muse mentioned that this fine community figured out a way to rewire the front door sensor to the filament so that if / when the printer runs out of filament, the print will stop until you have loaded a new spool for it to continue...

if anyone knows where I could find that (or has done it?) - is it a hard process? likely that will be the first thing I do when I get this machine!
