Added the 18mm mount
New file: Stock_plate_probe_mount_18mm_RevA.STL
I've changed the 12mm probe mount to lower it by 20mm. Offset distance remains the same. If anyone needs the 18mm probe version right the way please let me know. Otherwise I'll update that one when I get a chance.

I will have to modify these fittings to allow the probe to sit lower toward the bed. I did not realize that some of these probes do not have enough thread on them to be placed all the way down.
This is an add-on to your 2014 Printrbot Simple stock aluminum extruder plate to mount the induction probe sensor for auto bed leveling feature. I have included both the 12mm opening for the Printrbot probe as well as the 18mm opening for the aftermarket Amazon.com probe.
I've added 2 new integrated probe mounts. This gives a cleaner look plus you don't need to find 2 longer screws if you don't have them.
Update 4/26/2014 v.2
This is yet another variation to the extruder plate. This version moves the probe mount 30mm x 30mm away from the hotend while adding a fan mount to face the extruder setup. If your extruder motor is overheating and/or skipping during print, add the 40mm fan to keep it cool.
Print the part to mount your induction probe. You'll need 2 M3 screws that are 6mm longer than what you have now. The offset setting for the probe location is 0mm for Y and 30mm for X.
For a cleaner look and not having to find 2 longer M3 screws, you can opt to print the extruder plate with the probe mount integrated. The probe offset is the same as option 1.
This last variation for this mod moves the probe 30mm x 30mm away from the hotend and places the 40mm fan mount facing the aluminum extruder setup instead.
