Hey sweetestpunch, Are you asking me or Erik? I'm using the original 3.0 bed with Kapton sheet covering, and I think Erik is using glass over his. By coverlet, I think you mean the the extruder cover. Mine is included in the writeup above https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B6UtZE7XM3WSTm5ITXhZd...

Re: Inductive Z-Probe Bed Autoleveling: Working!

Great Erik! Any chance you could share your implementation? The firmware mods would be pretty much the same, except that the servo defs would need adding. The z-probe trigger wiring would be nearly the same. However the solinoid would need another pin, which did you find that worked? The other inter...

Inductive Z-Probe Bed Autoleveling: Working!

This topic has been around the Forum for some time. I had some time between contracts and now have it working.

As I added a inductive proximity sensor to my Felix 3.1 the cable bundle grew to big to fit in a 16mm diameter hole. Now you can generate the cable covers for most extrusion sizes (10 to 40mm) and any hole size y...
