Loading flexible filaments


Recommended Posts


I just got the Smart Sensor and I'm pondering the use with flexible TPU filaments. It's very  hard, if not impossible, to get the filament through the sensor.

Any ideas on how to do this?

I'll probably engineer a new back plate (need one for mounting anyway) and include some kind of knob or slider that compress the internal spring. Something for you to consider for a future product version maybe.

Thanks for your reply.

Pretty cool,does the filament extrude fine at  your design?

It functions no different compared to without my addition; it's only the insertion of the filament that is a bit easier.
