The DIYElectronics Auto Bed Levelling Upgrade Kit for the Prusa i3 3D printer, adds an inductive metal sensor probe to replace the Z endstop. This kit is intended for printers running Marlin firmware on RAMPS1.4 and that are fitted with an aluminium print bed. This kit requires you to edit your firmware configuration file, please read below. 

Features:

  • Add capability for automatic bed levelling or tramming before prints by performing a multiple point Z height calibration across the bed. This uses the G29 G-code command built into the Marlin firmware. Read more here: http://reprap.org/wiki/G-code#G29_Auto_Bed_Leveling_in_Marlin
  • Improve first layer adhesion on big or multiple prints for a bed that is not leveled or is warped. 
  • Reduce the need to adjust Z endstop position over time as mounting bracket is far more rigid.

Kit includes:

  • Inductive Metal Proximity Sensor
  • 3D Printed Sensor Mounting Bracket
  • Mounting Hardware
  • Assembled Circuit Board for Sensor Interface to RAMPS 1.4 Electronics
  • Downloadable guide to installing and setting up your auto bed levelling kit and Marlin firmware configuration 

Requirements:

  • DIYElectronics Prusa i3 3D printer
  • RAMPS 1.4 electronics running Marlin firmware
  • Aluminium metal heated print bed (HPB) such as the MK3 HPB or Aluminium plate with Kapton heater.
  • Compatible with both standard 200x200mm or XL 270x250mm bed configurations

Important Notes:

Firmware: To activate the use of this kit you will need to edit some lines in the Configuration.h file of your Marlin firmware and upload to your printer electronics. This is explained in the downloadable guide and is not difficult even for beginners.
