Locking Filament Release Lever
#1
One of the things that I thought was cool about the expensive BondTech extruders was the ability to release the filament such that you don't need to continually press a button when loading or removing filament.

The ProStruder is easily modifiable and gave me a perfect opportunity to add this feature. This button/lever/whatever replaces a pair of acrylic and one M3 washer at the end of the filament release lever. It allows you to release the filament normally or, with a inward push, lock the lever in the down position for easy filament access.

Have a look at my thing at Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2751519

Cheers,
Tim
