Save your prints, reduce wasted filament, and enjoy easier completion of print jobs with re:3D Filament Detection. This upgrade enables your Gigabot to automatically detect when your filament has run out. It will respond by pausing the print and waiting for you to manually replace the filament and resume the print.

Tools Needed: 

  • 3mm Allen key
  • Needle nose pliers

Important Safety Information: Disconnect your Gigabot from power and make sure it is turned off during the installation process!
