I finally stopped using Windows to drive my printers after the 3rd time it did an update and restart in the middle of a 12 hour print. So I am now using Octoprint to drive the printers. I developed an Octoprint plugin to support JamSentry. It also provides the JamSentry status in a convenient tab so you don’t have to have it as a separate webpage. Info on the plugin and installation can be found here.
JamSentry is a small DIY device to detect filament jams and filament runout conditions. It does not require any printer hardware or firmware changes. This plugin allows Octoprint to take action when a jam is detected. The JamSentry unit itself has not changed and info on how it works and how to make one can be found here. Everything is free.
