Z-axis sensor issue solution

Post by mpoling » August 17th, 2016, 10:52 pm

Hi there! If anyone is having issues with the inductive Z-axis sensor, I have a good solution for the issue of a glass plate on the bed.
Instead of using the sensor to detect the bed, use it to detect the X-axis bottom smooth rod.
I removed the sensor from the mount and used electrical tape to attach it to the vertical aluminum frame on the left, facing upwards. It was then just a matter of finding the right height to fix it at to detect the bottom smooth metal rod on the X-axis, as shown in the picture.
Hope this helps anyone with a glass plate.
