Extruder Body with PINDA probe support brace for Original Prusa i3 MK2

thingiverse

I modified the original Extruder body to add some more substantial support to the PINDA probe mount. I noticed that the probe didn't seem to be as perfectly centered in the little circles during Mesh Bed Leveling and realized that it was at a slight angle, not nice and vertical. It was more of a leaning-tower-of-PINDA. . . Turns out that my mounting tab portion of the original extruder body that came with the kit had started to curve upward and the probe was no longer nice and vertical. So I thought that a brace would help the probe retain stability over time and exposure to heat. Installation note: you can slide the probe (with the top nut) from back to front through the opening, but if you want the part cooling fan to be nicely tucked away like it was originally, you will have to either unplug the part cooling fan from the circuit board to undo the wire and run it through the opening, or cut and splice the fan wire. Print Settings Printer Brand: RepRap Printer: Original Prusa i3 MK2 Rafts: No Supports: No Resolution: .20 Infill: 20% Notes: This is a Hot-end part so ABS is the best choice, I believe that PETG will also work but it will be more flexible so I do recommend ABS. PLA is not suitable for Hot-end parts.
