Filament monitoring

I've seen comments on the Sparklab website that the Repetier firmware supports filament monitoring and jam detection but can't find reference to it on the Repetier site or documentation. Could someone point me to it, please, as I would like to incorporate a filament monitor into a new extruder motor mount I am working on.




  • First solution is a simple switch. Only able to detect if a filament is empty or not.
    Second solution is a encoder like the sparklab. Also able to detect a jam. 

    You find it in the configurator.
  • Thanks, Rossini - I never thought to look in the configurator so I'm feeling a bit foolish!
