Simple Filament Winder – Tutorial

license filament winder Simple Filament Winder - Tutorial A simple but well working Filament Winder. In the featured picture above you can see a Nema34 but you can actually replace it with any motor you like. We currently use a 0.12kw AC Motor together with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD). The Nema34 is actually for a new version which I am currently working on and we use here in this tutorial 40×40 aluminium extrusions.


What’s needed for the Arduino code below?
  • Arduino Mega
  • Ramps 1.4
  • Nema 17 Motor
  • Endstop Switch ME-8108
  • Optical Switch (Sainsmart)
  • Resistor 500 Ohms
  • 2x Potentiometers
  • A4988 Driver
  • 12V PSU
  • 1x T5-25mm Belt for a shaft to shaft distance of 440mm
  • 2x Pulley T5-44
