Will this work with Repetier firmware? I really love this idea and will get my Hall sensor in a day or two to try to make one myself. But I use Repetier. Where can I find more information about setting up this type of z-probe in firmware? Thank you so much! Your design is the most elegant!
I didn't like the idea of cutting a hardened sewing needle as it wasn't going to give me a clean flat end (likely to just shatter). Instead, I used a 10p 3.5" finish nail that is much easier to cut and I cleaned up the cut using a Dremel tool with a grinding wheel. I did have to drill out the plastic a bit to get it to slide smoothly (if you can find a thinner 3.5" finish nail, go for it). I left the head on the nail so I can put a washer on the probe end to make it easier for an inclined fixture to pull the probe down for deployment. Sometimes being able to run to the local hardware store is a lot more immediate gratification than waiting 3 weeks for something shipping from China
