What is the decoupler?


Recommended Posts

It's those long skinny rectangular boxes - one of which is just above the person's hand.  It's very fancy and keeps track if the feeder in the MS is running slightly too fast or too slow than the feeder higher up on the printer itself.  The MS then adjust the speed slightly in the MS so it doesn't get too far ahead or behind the feeder on the printer.

    Thanks for the reply gr5. The photos in the ER52 notes only showed the filament motor drive mechanism. I thought that might be called the decoupler for some reason.
