Hi Guys!

I'd like to share with you our latest project; a filament detector and cleaner.
It seemed like missing a print due to either an empty spool or a broken filament was a common problem, so we did our best to offer a simple solution to this problem.

How would you install this on a direct drive extruder that has no bowden tube between the motor and the spool? It would also be a little large to stick on piece of PFTE tube above a direct drive extruder without some sort of mounting bracket or mounting holes.

Hi PDBeal,

Sorry for my late answer tongue sticking out smiley

As long as the Sentinel is installed before an extruder, bowden or direct-drive, it will work. The PTFE tube doesn't actually need to go up to the extruder. The two fittings hold PTFE inside the sentinel, which can be extended based on the user setup.

The Sentinel has two mounting holes, you can install it on any flat surface very easily!

Hope it helped!
