Welcome to InFiDEL’s documentation!¶
A cheap, yet precise filament diameter sensor, intended to compensate for filament diameter deviations in real-time.
The InFiDEL is a cheap (< $5) filament diameter sensor intended for use with FDM 3d printers. The sensor can be calibrated to provide surprisingly precise filament diameter readings in real-time. The main idea is to use the sensor to correct for filament diameter deviations while printing.
