This thing is a HotEnd Holder compatible with Scalar 3D printers from 3D Modular Systems and E3DLite6 hotend.
This holder is compatible with BLTouch leveling sensor.
This thing is a remix from "s3rkan" who remiexed the original hotend holder to fit the BLTouch sensor. Thanks again to him

You may have to adjust ZOffset once after you have mounted this system based on how the hotend is assembled.
BLTouch is compatible with RC8 and later version of Marlin firmware.
You need to activate the BLTouch functionality inside the firmware.
We provided a sample firmware to show how the BLTouch was configured (check configuration.h).
