Introduction
Introduction
This guide will take you through the M.I.N.D.A. and SuperPINDA sensor adjustment on the Original Prusa MINI and MINI+.
The M.I.N.D.A. sensor has a yellow tip, while the SuperPINDA has a black tip. The approach for adjusting it is the same for both versions.

Using your fingers turn the lead screw and move the entire X-axis down. Stop when the tip of the nozzle touches the heatbed! Avoid bending the heatbed!
Release slightly the screw on the minda-holder so you are able to adjust position of the M.I.N.D.A./SuperPINDA sensor.
Place a credit card under the M.I.N.D.A./SuperPINDA sensor or use the tip of a zip tie.
It is recommended to use an old/unused credit card! The magnets in the heatbed could make it unusable.
Gently press the M.I.N.D.A./SuperPINDA sensor down against the credit card.
Tighten the screw on the minda-holder. Do not use an excessive force, you can break the printed part!
Rotate the lead screw manually in the opposite direction to move the axis at least 5 mm up.
