Convert UP Plus2 auto bed leveling sensor to filament sensor

Post by arhi » Tue Aug 29, 2017 3:43 am

I'm using octoprint for a while to print with my UP Plus2 since I replaced the CPU.. and with octoprint I can easily manipulate print with plugins. One of the plugins is "pause when filament runs out" and the sensor attaches directly to orangepi/raspberypi gpio.. For this purpose I converted the auto bed leveling sensor to work as a filament sensor and I have to say it is flawless :D

if anyone want to do the same here's the stl: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2505829
