Has anyone used or seen one of these before, are they any good?
Was thinking one for 2 of my printers
Sadly they are out of stock but I got an email from them saying they are getting more in a few weeks

Hello all, it has been awhile since I have been on here and are wanting to get my RBB 1 going again and seeing what you would all recommend.
I was looking at getting a probe setup for bed levelling, as when I was trying to get the printer going awhile ago I found in the middle of the print bed the rail for the hotend was sagging a few mms in the centre and would be hard to get the bed all levelled.
What would you all recommend?

I have two inductive proximity sensors I can use one is 4mm no and the other is 8mm nc, but the connection diagram for each is different or should I not worry about it and wire it as normal that you guys are doing. Could someone able to give me some help as would like to wire them up today
Cheers

I have been having a look around and have watch different youtube clips but still a little confused on setting it for the hardware side,
At the moment I have ordered this from ebay:

The INDUCTIVE PROXIMITY DETECTION SENSOR SWITCH,
and the part I need some help with is the resistors that need to be put onto it, as to the correct ones and onto which wires.
Also just want to make sure in regards to wireing it onto the board I just put it at the same place as the end stops don't I.

Once I have finish mine I will update the wiki.

At the moment I am having an issue that when the head is in the middle the gantry is sagging from the weight and adds another mm or 2 and makes bed levelling impossible, I am running a pico hotend and have a 4mm thick glass bed

Just found this kickstarter for a 3D printer (The overloard) looks good as to features but for the price of the printer I don't know how they can get much profit from it, or get the parts at the cost of the printer.

Sorry if this is too off topic, but just saw this on kickstarted. Is this for real and it looks so wrong and doesn't even look real, wondering how long this will stay on kickstarter
