On one of my i3 clones based off of the brainworm from Tom’s 3D I upgraded to a genuine i3 and an Titan extruder. Not only are these really well made (3:1 gearing seems to be magic on 1.75mm filament) but it gives me a lot more peace of mind.
The i3 mkII layout uses an inductive sensor for automatic bedleveling, and since I would like to upgrade to a mk42 bed clone eventually, I wanted to make sure to follow this scheme. Sadly, the longer non-PINDA probe just doesn’t fit in the mounts bouncing around thingiverse.
Still, worked with this a bit and here’s my solution in a picture:
What I did was drill a hole in the base for the probe, and a getaway hole out the side (yes, over the holographic film) for the wire. My drill speed was a bit aggressive and it chipped off the corner, but once the top was screwed back on everything is solid.
So, hope this helps someone. It’s been running for about a month and a half for me without issue.
