The stock Anycubic Predator has the filament run-out sensor hanging under the electronics. Moving the sensor into the electronics enclosure is simple enough, but feeding the filament then becomes an issue. This printable part fixes that issue.
Installation instructions are as follows:
- Print PredatorFilamentGuide.stl, PLA is fine.
- Disconnect your printer from mains electricity.
- Remove the acrylic top cover by removing the 6 screws around its edges
- Remove the short length of bowden tube but leave the fitting in place.
- Remove the existing filament sensor, taking care not to damage the connector.
- Flip the sensor upside down and align it as shown in the provided photos. Re-insert the screws from the top.
- Carefully remove the filament sensor cable from the cable bundle, taking it back up and inside the electronics enclosure.
- Re-insert the connector into the sensor
- Reinstall the acrylic cover
- Take the section of bowden tube and cut it to 34mm in length
- Insert the cut bowden tube into the printed filament guide so it is flush with the top, as pictured.
- Insert the printed filament guide into the hole in the centre of the acrylic, ensuring that the "open" side of the guide is facing towards the right of the printer
Please note: I take no responsibility for any damage you cause to your printer whilst carrying out this modification to your own printer. These instructions are provided as-is.
