I'm working on a similar project the incudes a tension sensor.
It looks like most extruder drives are 200 ppr.
can you explain why you chose the 600 ppr encoder?

I chose it because it was readily available and lower ppr encoders cost about the same price on Amazon. Either ppr should provide enough resolution for measuring filament movement.

i want one or a code for davinci 2.0 duo so that instead of cancelling the print it pauses when jamed to fix it then can resume where it left off. it is so frustrating i had 4 jams such a waist! thanks for helping out this is a perfect place to start maybe someone can write the code.

You can have it pause OctoPrint instead of cancel by doing "filament_watch --alarmaction pause".

but i use the davinci duo? it has xyzware not octoprint. i want to keep what i use and add this pause feature is this possible?

Sorry, in that case it's not compatible unless someone modifies it to support xyzware.
