This is a small mounting bracket for a digital indicator I picked up from harbor freight for like 12 bucks.


The mount is meant to replace the left 16 mm spacer on the left fan, and the indicator mounts with a simple 1/4 bolt onto the mount, easy pleasy. Once you Have the indicator and the mounting bracket put together you don't need to ever take them apart again, and its about a 30 sec job to level your build platform to .01 of a mm. The process I use to level it is a little odd, but I start start a small print in one corner and try to get it as close to the layer height wanted visually, then I stop the print and install the indicator and using the corner i just leveled as a reference point level the rest of the corners out to this number. I use 2.30mm for my machine but it will be different slightly for individual machines

Thats a brilliant and simple solution. I like it. I'm curious though, Wont it crash into the side of the machine if you leave it on?

Indeed it will, that's why you have to remove it to actually print something, Its why I tried to make it as easy as possible to take it on and off
