Filament tracker like FTS (repetiter)
Something like repetier and FTS with an encoder before or after the (direct or bowden) extruder will be a nice addon.
It could be also use as a bowden live compensation as it is described by Daniel in this thread : https://groups.google.com/forum/m/#!topic/3dp-ideas/oPjgUamO8kk

I re- launch this thread after reading the delta forum, are you going to give us more information because what I rode looks like quite equal to those product:
I'm ready to be a beta tester if you need ! I'very some tiny rotary encoder at 300 pulse/rev ready to mount !
We're developing a filament out detector, using a Hall sensor to detect filament motion.
And what are you planning for it ? A pause like an endstop when filament is over or more functionality ? Jamming detector with a time delta before reducing speed?
Is it sync to the duetwifi ?
Damned! We are testing with an arduino and I will love to push more functionality !
The awesome bit about using a Duet is the macros on triggers allow you to customise the action taken. Currently triggers only work with a digital transition (so you can pause a print, sound an alarm, etc when the filament jams) however for this it would be great to have some triggers related to %difference in rate demanded vs delivered.
It's exactly my wish !
