This design allows for mounting an HX711 and load sensor on top of the Prusa-box 3D printer enclosure. It replaces the top mount mod, and allows using the Filament Scale Enhanced plugin to measure the remaining amount of filament on the spool.
It's designed to use a minimal amount of soldering, and you can build it with no soldering at all if you can find an HX711 board that has the pin headers pre-soldered onto them. It uses an RJ45 8P8C connector to allow for modularity and ease of installation of the HX711 board in the box.
