Filament length counter (Printrbot simple metal) #3DThursday #3DPrinting

filament counter

UserUnrelated shares:

Filament counter to display the number of meters of filament used. (it displays the 1/10’ths place, hence the white-out decimal point)
It utilizes the core of a Veeder-Root 742946-201 non-resetable rotary counter.
I doubt you would be able to find another one of these out there in the wild, and the nearest sibling costs $100+, so I will work on a printable counter eventually.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
