I wanted a "cost effective" digital depth gauge I could use to level my Printrbot bed. This is a bracket to hold the AccuRemote Depth Gauge.
Print off the following:
-13-165_depth_gauge_mount_male.stl (qtty 1)
-13-165_depth_gauge_mount_female.stl (qtty 1)
Hardware needed (either of the below will work):
-#6-32 x 1"L Phillips Pan Head Machine Screw (qtty 3)
-#6-32 x 1 1/4"L Phillips Pan Head Machine Screw (qtty 3)
Purchase this depth gauge ($20):
Print, and purchase the parts listed above. (The hardware used was extra that came with the Printrbot.) Then thread the screws through the "13-165_depth_gauge_mount_male" part into the "13-165_depth_gauge_mount_female" part (see pictures). The screws should self tap into the plastic.
-If you have the AccuRemote Depth Gauge take a look at the "AccuRemot Depth Gauge Holder" I published for it (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:104060).
-Depending on the extension size used for the depth gauge, the gauge may have to be held "down" due to the spring pressing back "up".
