Using a filament cleaner can help ensure that dirt, debris, dust and fluff doesn’t easily get into the print head via the filament feed.
This works by clasping around the filament and any dirt is removed by the sponge inside it.
In this video we look at the original model and how the very clever hinge system is integrated into the single model print.
We then watching it print as well as the end result when I prepare the sponge and ensure the hinge mechanism works.
All in all a very interesting project that creates something useful for my ongoing 3D printing.
Thank you idig3d for creating and sharing this model on Thingverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1692395
Note, I will not be oiling or lubricating the filament – this is for residue removal only.
Thank you for watching.
