12/31/2019 UPDATE: Well... I don't even have this printer anymore. I don't have the drive to keep working on this (obviously)
But I am going to just keep this here for the idea. Lots of people seem to like it.
8/29/2017 UPDATE: All I can say is WOW! I haven't logged into thingiverse in such a long time, and I am genuinely surprised how much attention this design is still getting!
I graduated from college, got a job, moved out, and gone through some life changes, took a hiatus from "making", and now I am back!
I plan on reviving this project from the fiery depths of my project bucket, and finally getting something that is easily obtainable for all! I hereby announce the beginning design phases of a printable mechanical counter compatible with this design! More updates to come!
I designed a filament counter to display the number of meters of filament used. (it displays the 1/10'ths place, hence the white-out decimal point)
It utilizes the core of a Veeder-Root 742946-201 non-resetable rotary counter.
I doubt you would be able to find another one of these out there in the wild, and the nearest sibling costs $100+, so I will work on a printable counter eventually. Maybe someone else will get to it before me, who knows.
I AM WORKING ON A VERSION 2
that utilizes a $4 electromechanical counter available on ebay, and utilizes a 5v pulse signal.
The counter is en-route to me from china, so it might take a bit to get working on it.
