The hot end of the extruder (in red) is just as it sounds--it is the heated part of the extruder. To the right of the extruder is the z probe or z sensor (tip in orange). This is what allows for auto-leveling. The z probe senses the position of the print bed by inductive current produced by the aluminum in the table.
