    I went with the mini IR probe from here
    https://printedsolid.com/collection...cts/mini-ir-differential-height-sensing-board
    also another available from
    https://www.filastruder.com/products/mini-differential-ir-height-sensor

    Nothing ever touches the bed after installing this. I made a dual fan setup for the stock extruder with a built in mount for it here
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1957676

    There are several other mounts available on thingiverse also. Sorry no experience with the BLtouch.

    Anyone know how to install the differential IR sensor from printedsolid.com on the robo? Having many troubles with the switches and I have the differential IR, but cannot find the proper way of installing.

    Did you get bltouch to work and was it just a drop in I am thinking of going this route it seems like it would just replace endstop switches and work

    I dont know of anyone with a bl touch on their robo. I have it on one printer and greatly dislike it. Look into the IR sensor @mark tomlinson posted the link to above. I think (its an opinion not fact) that its a much better set up
