M3SE BL Touch Probe Upgrade

Hi All,

I have noticed there is a M3 ID probe upgrade kit available from the Makergear store. Will this upgrade work on the M3 SE? If not, I'm a little curious to know why there is no M3 SE kit available? Thanks.

Someone on the mosaic fb group just bought a M3-SE printer from makergear and it came with the probe attached so it seems that makergear is selling printers with it. Just not sure if its available as a upgrade option. Reach out to makergear and ask them. Mounting plate on ID is different from SE so it might work on SE but you will need to print the belt holder for it

makeal - appreciate you letting me know about the SE with the probe. I will contact Makergear as suggested.

Tried to find some info about it via Google and failed, could you share a response from Makegear if it is possible?

Hi Glen,

I did ask about the compatibility of the ID probe upgrade and unfortunately they are not compatible with the SE. However, they are working on a upgrade for the M3 SE Rev0. That's as much information as I was told, so I am not sure what the upgrade will include.

This sucks. I just received probe upgrade for the SE and it’s a paperweight. I’ll just see it someone wants it on here.

you just need to get a top plate from SE. ID has a different top plate. Try to return it or you can see if you can find the plate and make it work with SE :)

The SE top doesn’t have a mounting area for the sensor.
