MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
And this thing starts just as something to use until I had enough money to buy an original BLTouch :D
But yes, if you are starting a new one and will buy the sensor it is advisable to go for the better one. And the shafts from FDD are really great probes! They are hard and precise and you can take advantage of the small bushings too.
The new version will use two small magnets instead of a spring so will be possible to use one of these shafts as probing tip.
