For 3D Printing enthusiasts, the world of 3D Printer Upgrades is almost endless, with a wide range of different upgrades relating to print quality, speed and other important aspects. One such example of a great upgrade is the Filament Runout Sensor – a Creality Original Upgrade that attached onto the frame and monitors the filament between the spool and the extruder. From here, it continuously checks to see whether the filament has run out or not, and then pauses the print if the spool runs out while the print is still going. This helps to prevent failed prints if the filament runs out halfway through, and also prevents damages relating to 3D Printers trying to extrude without any filament – possibly leading to overheating or burning of the less heat-resistant components.

This part is a Creality Original Upgrade, which means you can rely on the quality of design and functionality that it offers. It is made to natively fit any of the CR-10 S Range of 3D printers, and is simple to both install and utilise once set up properly. It attaches to the side of the frame on the side that the spool is located, and then plugs into the control box via an included 3-pin motor cable. Within the plastic enclosure, it uses a limit switch to identify whether filament is still running through it or not, and then sends a signal to pause the print if your 3D Printer Filament runs out.

Typical Applications for the Filament Runout Sensor - Creality Original:

The Creality Original Filament Runout Sensor Upgrade is beneficial for any print in which you might run out of filament midway, but is especially valuable for long overnight prints after you’ve gone to bed. As a 3D Printing enthusiast, one of the worst feelings is waking up to a two or three day-long print to find that you ran out of filament overnight and the printer continued to extrude nothing as it went through all of the expected motions. In such an event, you would typically have to restart the entire print, wasting not only time but also money on plastic, while still cannot guaranteeing a good print on the second try. This is why so many experienced 3D printing enthusiasts choose to invest in this great upgrade, as it has the potential to save a lot of time, effort, blood, sweat and tears by ensuring that running out of filament does not lead to disaster.

As a final note, this sensor has been reported to work on the Creality Ender 3, although we have not yet been able to test this yet, so we cannot include it in our list of compatible printers.

Although Creality 3D have been working within the industry since 2014, their addition of the Creality CR-10 series is what really catapulted them to the front line of competition, as it offered substantially better quality compared to other 3D printers – while simultaneously reducing the cost and complexities of the machines.


The quality of Creality’s 3D Printers and accessories shows through in their market history, with the brand selling around 3000 printers in their first year on the market, followed by about 10,000 sales over the next year. Now, Creality easily sells around 30,000 or more 3D printers each year, with sales continuously rising as they bring out more models. These are impressive numbers when considering the fact that they entered the industry as unknown competitors, quickly rising through the ranks and now even competing with Wanhao and similar top brands.


If you are looking for excellent 3D Printers that offer affordability without compromising on quality, Creality 3D is certainly a brand that you should take note of. From the basic Creality Ender 2 all the way up to the large build volume Creality CR-10 S5, there are few other brands who are capable of offering such a refined package while still maintaining some of the most enticing prices in the industry.
