    Here is a link for the latest design of my filament jam sensor,

    I have exhausted my knowledge of coding on this one, and I have simply got not enough time to finish this project.

    I wish I had more time to work on this, but I'm hoping by posting this it can help anyone interested in improving or modifying my designs.
    I've been working on this for a while, so hopefully it will help some.

    It will sound when the extruder jams, or the hobbed wheel cant push the fillament, if the fillament breaks or runs out.
    And a pulse can be sent from the arduino to the pi to cancel the print, with some code tweaks.

    It works on Arduino, and so all my code has been uploaded also. With the Rule Britannia tune as the alarm. Mrs Bucket will be proud.
