Mosaic Endstop Mounts by AlexEnglish Oct 23, 2011

Description

Mounts for Y-min, X-min, and X-max endstop switches for the Mosaic printer.

This is one of the printers we use at the ProtoParadigm workshop ( protoparadigm.com ) and found this to be an invaluable, but simple upgrade, especially since the switches and electronics for the min endstops were already included in the Mosaic kit.

Thanks Alex for all your help... from the constant emails, the excellent filament, and the great recommendation on the Mosaic. This thing rocks! 2 days after opening the box and it's doing phenomenal prints.
Thanks for the note, glad these worked well for you. Sorry to hear the one is a little loose. Like you said, it will probably vary a little bit with print settings. My print came out to a nice friction fit that was about right. I hope the glue works out for you.

Would you mind posting some pics of your installed switches?
Printed and installed, and it's like a new machine! SOOO nice to be able to just home every axis at once now.

One note, the X min orientation, as printed, doesn't have a tremendous amount of holding friction on my frame. Of course this will vary in small amounts by print and by the laser cut of the wood. I'll probably just put a dab of glue on it once I get it dialed in.
Thanks for making them!

Instructions

Y endstop mounts on the rear of the carriage, replacing the nylon spacer at the end of the rail.

The X endstop can be used for min or max by rotating it. It mounts over the edge of the frame on the top of the machine, and stays in place by friction.

The switch mounts to the y-min endstop using two 3m screws with nuts (washers might be a good idea too). The x switches mount using 3m screws screwed directly into the part, no need for nuts or washers.
