one a Another question on the bed and extruder which temperature you print PLA and what speed???
(i am noob in the 3d printing)
and thx for the files

Printing right now :-)

Awesome design - when you want to make a newer little better version some day, the "ring" for the sensor is too thin... had to reprint it 2 times as it always broke when screw the sensor. The sizes are all correct and perfect.

What is the X and Y offset of the sensor relative to the hotend? Thanks.

You have that values? I am just printing this design.

No sorry, I used a ruler and roughly got the values. I then designed and printed my own version :)

Brill. Got all the mechanics sorted, works great!
Do you have a copy of your Marlin firmware setup I could download?

Where can I find the purple bearing mount ?

It is one of the many versions of the Prusa i3 X-carriage.

Hi OKtavius, really like your mount, im printing with it for a while know and it is a lot sturdier tha the original one. Only downside itwould have is the cutting i had to do for the sensor (iaccidentelly shorted mine so idont use it anymore i'm waiting for the replacement )
but great job !

hi Oktavius,
could you kindly provide a link, how to use the proximity sensor?
i am a fresh sunhokey owner and this looks like a perfect upgrade-option...i a also a newbee to 3d-printing, so i would really enjoy a hint how to use this sensor...
thanks a lot,
you mount looks also very, very promising ...

hey Oktavius, very nice!
may i ask about the white stuff you used for the adhesion over the heated bed ?

Just plain old glue stick. I am hunting for a different solution as it gets messy after awhile.
