About the Filament Encoder

Went through quite a few iterations from the original design. The most notable changes are:

  • the way the shaft is assembled
  • the PC4-M6 bowden couplers
  • the removal of the PTFE within the encoder
  • the use of 625rs/625zz bearings that are found in POM vslot wheels
  • Only M3X12 screws

FIles

  • RigidParts.3mf - Collection of all the dark blue parts
  • TPUWheel.3mf
  • Step and f3z files for modification
