My stock CR10s sensor does not fit.

Hi Jeffintexas
Sorry to hear that. I didnt get a sensor with my CR-10 hence I made it clear it is for the sensor shown in the pics. Not sure what the stock one is like.

No problem, guess I misread it.

If anyone plans to use these instructions for the stock CR-10 filament sensor provided with the printer, set the setting to NORMALLY OPEN.

Hi, can I have a link to the 3mm brass inserts you mentioned?

They came with the switch that I bought. I didnt get them separately. However i switched to the ptfe bowden tube insert option in the end as the brass inserts popped out a few times.

Thank you for this. It works great. I have only encountered one problem with it so far with TPU which was so flexibile it constantly gave false positives. For standard stiffer filaments it's been great.

I have the sensor setup to notify through telegram when it trips. The Gcode works perfect when moving the print head away and back but if not reloaded in a short time period the heaters will turn off (a safety precation on my pi).
