After lots of hassle, I finally made the printer work.
I also got myself one bed leveling sensor from eBay, LJ18A3-8-Z/BX 3D Printer Inductive Sensor Bed Auto Level +Plug For Anet A8 A2 A6.
I'm not sure how to setup it. Should I print some holders for it first? Where are they?
Should I somehow update the firmware?
You need to do two or three things:
- Print a holder or bracket for the probe, if your probe did not come with one, and looking at the eBay item listing, it doesn't appear to include a bracket. There are a number of designs out there, take a look at thingiverse, for example:
- Change the firmware -
SkyNet 3D, Marlin is a good choice, or Anet's own
- You may need to change the Z-stops
There is a step by step guide here, Autolevel for the A8 Anet 3D Printer. It is for the A8 but most, if not all, of the steps will apply to the A6
