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.
Autoleveling is possible with an inductive sensor (LJ8A3-2-Z/BX-5V diameter: 8 mm). But thisinductive sensor needs a metal surface at 2 mm distance so I changed the glass printer bed (4 mm) with a custom made aluminium plate of 3 mm in thickness (dimensions are on the image). This sensor is NPN NO so it does not need any resistor or divider so it works with 5 volts. I have connected the wires directly to the z-axis endstop pins of the ramps board (Brown to Pin1, Blue to Pin2, Black to Pin3).
