Description

**Work in progress - follow for updates.**

This Z-probe is set up to work with an E3D all-metal hot end, which is the best you can get for a Rostock as far as I know. The E3D sits higher than the stock Rostock hot end, so if you haven't upgraded this will be too short unless you get a longer metal rod. There's a remix that will work with the stock hot end here: thingiverse.com/thing:169980

This is a reinterpretation of Marco Antonini's [Rostock Z-Probe](http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:111397), done in Sketchup. His probe doesn't fit to a Rostock MAX platform, so I decided to design a new mount that would, as well as accepting neodymium magnets you can get from Amazon and a metal rod you can get from McMaster-Carr (both of which are ideal if you're in North America.) I also thought the original probe didn't look threatening enough, so I embellished that a little.

At the moment, this part (and the instructions) should get you up and running with a basic Z-probe. I still need to design the piece that deploys the probe (for now you'll need to do it manually.) I'd also like to get some Marlin firmware instructions up.
