TAZ 6 Mechanical Filament Sensor #3DThursday #3DPrinting

I’ve recently been doing a large number of longer prints overnight and have had a few where the filament has run out and continued to print. Which is very annoying.

Now that I’m using OctoPrint to run my printer I’m able to install a plugin that will detect whether there is filament going into the extruder. I have my printer in an enclosure which is smaller left to right so I’m using a different reel holder so I wasn’t able to use the existing filament sensors on here.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
