Stefan from CNC Kitchen shares this great find at this year’s Midwest RepRap Festival. Called The Filament Star, this tool changer can make 3D printing easier and more interesting.
The Filament Star, which I found at Midwest RepRap Festival 2022, is a 3D printing tool head that rotates to change tools. Jerry and Jack Fisher of US 3D LLC implemented this concept on their Ender-5 along with a DUET and extension board. Due to the modularity of the tool plate, you can not only mount hotends on it, but even use it with different tools such as pens. Let’s find out more!
