Description

So I finished putting together my Mendel Max 3 dual extruder 3D printer recently, and as usual I have a horrible time leveling the bed. As a result, I go and get a Dial Indicator from Harbor Freight, but unfortunately, there isn't an easy way to mount it on the print head. That's why I made this mount. It attaches to the DTI with a M5 screw and you slip it in between the two extruders on the front. It's not perfect, but good enough for my purposes. Let me know what you think.

Update 3/16/2015: I have updated the design to what I consider is the final form. The previous versions wobbled while calibration was being performed, but that has since been fixed. I hope this design will be as useful to others as I have found it for myself. I have included 2 versions, one with and the other without supports.
