Hello everyone.
Here is a snap-on leveling tool that snaps directly on the the carrage of your Makerbot Replicator 2X.

It is similar to others out there like:
einer_designs Thing: 23013

This one I made so when I alter an extruder for repair or maintenance I can re-level them while still on the carrage and not take the bar off or (more dificult for me) use the build plate to level the nozzles.
I have included stl file ready to print and an IGES file soyou can make your own modifications.

Enjoy and let me know of your improvements.


it took some trial and error to make it the right size to simply snap onto my 2X carrage.
I printed and standard resolution, 3 shells, 30% infill, and .23 layer height.

Awesome design. After scaling it a bit for my CTC, dual printing has never been better.

what scale did you use ?

So... if your nozzles are out of alignment and you need to level them, you must first print an object on your out-of-alignment printer to use as an alignment tool? Something doesn't sound quite right about this, but I'll give it a try...

You can just print with the lower nozzle when they are not aligned. It is not a two color print.

How do you actually level? Kapton on one side or loosen the heads themselves?

You should loosen the heads. Take off the drive block by the screws in the fans and then there are small back screws in the back. Use the allen wrench to loosen it and it should sink on its own.
