This is part 2 of the Replicator 2/2X DuetWifi Upgrade series.
Part 1,3 and 4 can be found here:
This is a simple mount to attach the DC42 Mini Differential IR Probe to the Makerbot Replicator 2X extruder carriage.
Aside from the IR Probe and the mount you will need a 2mm longer M3 screw to replace the stock screw. Please refer to the pictures to get an idea on how it is secured (component side should face away from the hot end).
As there there is just enough space to fit the sensor board below the carriage you will need to solder the 3 cables directly to the sensor board instead of using the supplied pin header. I recommend using 24AWG silicone cable for this purpose. Route these up between hotend and fans.
Adjust the distance between hotend and carriage if necessary to get the right clearance between probe and hotend.
Note: tested with the Raffle AluCarriage Dual but should work with the stock Makerbot carriage as well.
I recommend printing the part in ABS or mill from Delrin/Nylon for added temperature resistance
