 Product Description

This is an auto bed leveling upgrade for the Prusa i3 3D Printer kit.  How it works is before the print starts, the bed leveling arm is extended with the Z switch is connected to it.  Then the printer probes the bed at pre-defined points.  With this information the printer can determine the height and slope of the bed in the X and Y directions.  During the print the printer actively compensates for the variation in Z height of the bed.

The kit includes the mounting hardware to fix the kit to your printer, a servo to extend and retract the arm, a Z switch and cabling.  The wires have been presoldered to the servo and switch.

The assembly instructions are in the form of YouTube videos.

  1. A favor

    Do yourself a favor and buy this unit. It is worth every penny.


  2. Definitely a Worthwhile Upgrade...

    Posted by Quinton on 7th Jan 2016

    So as usual with all my reviews, I will start at 5 and then remove points for any issues encountered ... this should actually be a 4.5 but I will leave it at 4.

    The kit is fairly straightforward to install and get working except for the mounting screws that come with the servo. You are supposed to use these screws to mount the servo to the laser cut component.

    While mounting it ... the fitting was so tight that I actually ended up stripping the heads right off the screw. Luckily I was able to remove the stripped screws without too much bother.

    Fortunately for me, this upgrade replaces the default Z-stop switch, so I used the M2 bolts and nuts from that mount to mount the servo to the laser cut part.

    I would recommend you add two extra M2 nuts and bolts to the kit as the screws provided with the servo are a real pain.

    Great Kit - Worthwhile Upgrade.


  3. Easy and very good

    Posted by Robby on 14th Dec 2015

    Thought I was going to have issues installing this but I was wrong. Its a breeze with Paul's fantastic video tutorial and a little reading.

    Only issue... watch you don't overtighten the bolts or the perspex cracks.. but this goes for the whole printer not just the auto levelling kit.


    Again great service and product.
