  1. Hi Monty, mmm, no, I have not noticed these "noises" ... perhaps the screw that adjusts the distance of the ball bearing was too tight and requires a greater effort from the feeder ? Guglielmo I did suspect the adjustment might be optimized for 1.75mm filament. So I'm currently running with the cap on the screw head not touching the "arm" and putting a small piece of filament between the arm and the block - seems to have eliminated the noises. I also printed a Robert version 2 feeder to replace the stock feeder.
  2. Guglielmo, Thanks for your great UM2 upgrade idea, and thanks to Tinkergnome for his great UM2 firmware update. I just installed my Tunell Filament Monitor on my UM2 as you described, but I had unusual noises in my feeder and noticed fairly high tension on the connection from the output of the filament monitor to the feeder. I moved my filament monitor closer to the feeder as my photo shows, using a longer bolt to attach to the left servo cover - now the feeder noise is gone. Thanks, Monty I also updated the monitor timeout to 16 seconds. I'll bet the 8 second default timeout is fi
