I wonder if they will sell an upgrade kit for the existing Up! Plus users that implements the auto leveling feature.

I have heard that they won't be offering an upgrade.

Based on the video there is an extra port for the probe. I guess the big question is whether they are using the same mainboard and an existing port for the height sensor. For me I don't see the point. I have a lot of printer and the Up! Plus needs the least calibration of all of them ... once every 3 months with the heaviest use and it's not that hard. On the other hand my repraps are much more painful and some (old models) need tuning every few weeks.

Yes they use the same mainboard as the current model, so I am told.

I just called John at octave.com and he said that they did try the auto level device with an Afinia and it did not come out right, so they won't be offering it. Has anybody else tried it?

That was the calibrator was taken from an Up! Plus 2 and used on an Afinia. There is no Afinia to speak of.
