This update give the possibility to using one filament end-switch for two different position on the linear slider. When I change the filament I am using the same end-switch to control broken filament on left or right roller. For more details take a look on the video.

Materials and methods

I has used two additional screws M3-16mm to fix rollers and two M3-16mm screws to fix the slider base on the printer (see attached files). Material: Nylon but it can be a PLA! Two small rollers helps to reduce the friction inside the end-switch body during filament movements back and forward. This update reduce undesirable vibrations created buy friction and give the possibility to use the same end-switch for both filament's rollers positions.
