Rostock Max v3 EZRStruder Filament Sensor for Octoprint

Post by rocky00717 » Fri Nov 25, 2016 7:47 pm

Hey Guys,

I modified the EZR struder to include an optical filament sensor.

It prints but i haven't hooked it up yet. Welcome any feedback. :D

I just ordered my RM v3 tonight! I would love to see pictures of your modified EZR struder to start planing my theoretical optical filament sensor.

Also, Joe that one looks like it will be a really nice option.

I printed this up and it does not work as is with the EZRstruder, The EZR I guess went thru a design change and the where the filament exits the EZR has changed. the use the same 4mm coupling as the HE280 uses which requires a design change.

I check the Github drawings and they don't reflect this change either. and the solidworks file is hard to disassemble to get just a the base.

Did you modify the solidworks file or the STL to make these change you made,

Hi
I was wondering if anyone ever made the changes to the 'EZRstruder optical filament sensor' to allow it to work with the current EZRstruder.

Kevin - fairly new to this whole 3d printer stuff :D
