Is there somethin like Filament tangle detection?

Is there any way i can detect wheter my filament spool is tangled during print so it stop printing? When i carry my filament around sometimes it gets tangled and i am scared that it might damage electronics or other hardware bcs it wont stop printing.

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

Print yourself some filament clips.  It's in the nature of the spooling process that the filament cannot tangle when filling the spool so all tangles are caused when loose ends of filament slip under one another.  By clipping and immobilising the loose end you avoid the problem.

Cheerio,
