Finally, the perfect way to measure filament while extruding. This new Filameasure mounts to the Filabot Spooler and measures the freshly made filament as it is being produced. This in-line measurement allows for on the fly adjustments to dial in the diameter for the best possible filament.
Explanation of the different versions
Mitutoyo Filameasure - Stand Alone Filameasure
The new version Filameasure uses a top of the line Mitutoyo digital indicator for great precision. This version is able to work with our Filalogger SPC and software to record the filament as it is being extruded for historical data. The Filalogger is not required for using this version, it is an add on for future developments.
Filalogger Software and SPC Unit (Mitutoyo Filameasure Not Included)
This is an addon that will only work with the Mitutoyo Filameasure unit. This allows customers to record the diameter of the filament and save the file for future use. During extrusion, the Filalogger software will output live diameter readings in a nice convenient visual, as shown in the photo below. The Filalogger software and Filalogger SPC work together to log the diameter data in a CSV format for future analysis. The Filalogger software runs on Windows only.
