Has anyone successfully replaced the inductive Z probe on the Monoprice MP10 (Mini or regular) with a different type, such as BLTouch or IR? I find that the stock inductive probe isn't so accurate, and since it's inductive it only works with the aluminum build plate but not with glass or PEI, which I much prefer.

From Thingiverse you can find a BLTouch mount for the MP10 (and MP10 mini):

MonoPrice MP10 BLTouch mount

Note that in order to use the BLTouch sensor you need a different controller board that supports connecting a BLTouch sensor as the MonoPrice controller board doesn't support connecting a BLTouch sensor.

From ref.:

A BLTouch adapter for the Monoprice MP10 & MP10 Mini. NOTE: you will need an open source control board to get this to work as the stock firmware on the MP10 line of products does not allow for a BLTouch.

  • $\begingroup$ @SZH I don't own a MP10, but there are plenty of boards out there nowadays, you are doing good by investing in a 32-bit controller board with enough drivers and options. $\endgroup$
