Filament Width sensor Kit
This Kit comes without the TSL1401CL sensor & 3D Printed Part. You can select the sensor and 3D Part in the Options Section !**
11/11/2018 - I have now added the option to select the 3D printed part.
Now with PCB Ver:3.2 - SMD capacitors moved near devices .
Measure your filament width 1.75mm or 2.85mm with this sensor. Marlin must be configured to show the read width. otherwise use the filament monitor kit or else just use your voltmeter !
The code has been totally rewritten and improved for the sensor to read more accurately !
3D Printer Filament Width sensor , with avr processor ATtiny85 , the mcu measures the filament width by using the TSL1401CL sensor 128x1 chip .
A high brightness white LED on top of the tower casts the shadow of the filament on the TSL1401CL sensor which consists of a line of photo diodes. The mcu then outputs the corresponding width by an voltage ie.. (1,75 volts = 1,75mm) . Marlin needs to be configured to read the width of the filament on the lcd. With this feature enabled the filament width compensation is used to compensate for the extruding speed according to filament diameter variations.
What You Get
Filament width sensor PCB
Programmed Tiny85 chip
Misc Components Resistors, SMD capacitors, electrolytic capacitors,connector,switch , led
Supplied with instructions
This Kit comes without the TSL1401CL sensor as default. If you want to buy also the sensor Select it from the Options before adding the item to the cart. You can also purchase the sensor in my other tindie Listing !
