New Z-probe is super tight

New Z-probe is super tight

Postby AmazingSpanoMan » 2014-Jun-Tue-07-Jun

So I purchased a probe for a wood 2014 simple but, unfortunately, after a couple hours there was a failure in the wiring. Printrbot replaced it for me and I got around to reinstalling it over the weekend. Anyway, I works great and I made some adjustments to how I have the extreme amount of extra wires tied up to help prevent the wire failure again.

I'm now noticing that the probe gets super close to the metal bed before it activates. It sill works fine and I haven't had to make any adjustments to my Z offset but I found it rather weird that it is such a difference compared to the old one. I have it as close to the nozzle height as possible. If it goes any lower before activating the nozzle will ram the bed.

Is anyone else noticing their probe not activating until about ~1mm above the bed instead of 4mm?
