    The sensor replaces your Z axis micro switch.

    Fred if you contact me through thingiverse I will send you a copy of my firmware. I use the same username just private message me your email and I will forward it to you, I'll look over your bom but I think we will all be using slightly different sizes due to the original build only offering a sketch up file to reverse engineer for the sizes. I'm very happy with mine now its all dialled in, its printing better than my original CTC printer and much faster too.

    I'm pleased the marlin firmware is working for you, my vulcanus prints far better than my ctc /flashforge in terms of layer height and the quality of the prints.

    I didn't care much for the original extruder drive unit I used initially, (See first images) no matter what spring or modifications I did to it I could not get it to grip the filament as it should have done.The prints were coming out ok other than a few areas with ringing.Yesterday I switched it for a spare unit I printed months ago for my CTC printer.I modified the extruder feeder by drilling out the bottom exit for the filament to pass through into the e3d v6 I'm using and fired off a test print.The change has put this printer in a different league, perfect prints from start to finish with no signs of ringing in sight.If your using the same unit as I was then change it. I also used the vgroove bearing I'd installed when I first printed it.I'll go back through my saved links and post t...see more »I didn't care much for the original extruder drive unit I used initially, (See first images) no matter what spring or modifications I did to it I could not get it to grip the filament as it should have done.The prints were coming out ok other than a few areas with ringing.Yesterday I switched it for a spare unit I printed months ago for my CTC printer.I modified the extruder feeder by drilling out the bottom exit for the filament to pass through into the e3d v6 I'm using and fired off a test print.The change has put this printer in a different league, perfect prints from start to finish with no signs of ringing in sight.If your using the same unit as I was then change it. I also used the vgroove bearing I'd installed when I first printed it.I'll go back through my saved links and post the one I used if I can find it.Its the red unit fitted to the extruder stepper just your standard extruder for the CTC printer If you want to find it yourself there's loads to choose from.

    I used marlin firmware and I've modified the menu's to add a few extra features, I don't know if you can private message here if not contact me through thingiverse ( same name as here) and I'll send you a copy.your wiring must match mine as in orientation of your steppers for it to work though.

    My corexy homes to zmin so I used -1 this brings the bed up to the sensor then stops when homed.I use the G1 Z320 to return the bed to the base of the printer after a print. If that's any help.

    I could if you can forward your email address. I'm using what the build states for electronics, if yours is the same my firmware should work on yours

    I couldn't get Repetier to run well on mine and Tbh I preferred the look and use of marlin on the bigger screen. It worked out easier to tweak all the settings to once I figured out what I needed to change.The LCD mount is thingiverse item 817274 I think I used a 75mm M4 bolt for the hinge on mine

    Yeah I'm pleased with the outcome, still lots to finish yet like making the top to seal it all up for ABS prints and adding bifold doors to the front/sides. here's one more pic that gives an idea of the parts for the vulcanus. I did the printed parts on my CTC/Flashforge clone In Luminous blue Abs at 50% infill.

    Sure no problem do a search on eBay for pond hose I used the 20mm internal diameter about £5.00 for 2 meters

    I finally got around to posting on my vulcanus printer, I finished mine about two weeks ago and its running perfect on marlin firmware. The bed size works out to 350mm square along with a 500watt 240volt silicone heater it did take awhile to get it setup right for the auto bed level but now I wouldn't use it without it. Thanks for a great design.Keith.
