Filament Sensor

Hi All

This is beyond my pay-grade and understanding. Tripped over this add-on for another make of printer that houses a Filament sensor. I have no clue as to how it works however I like the functionality and idea of having a sensor that detects if you run out of filament or if the filament breaks and obviously is not feeding,

What do others think about this type of smarts in a future Snapmaker?

have a great week

It just has a simple micro switch that gets triggered when the filament is no longer going through it.
I too have noticed that some 3D printers have that feature. I also believe the OctoPi can trigger user defined actions once the sensor is triggered. A nice feature.

I suggest that the SnapMaker team add that in future revisions.
