Compact mechanical endstop holder by Chri Aug 17, 2012

Description

I designed a compact mechanical endstop holder for a second Orca i am building.
Reason for nearly closed case is that it will hold the endstop better than only two short fans (when properly printed) and for a optical nicer look.
Corners are all rounded for better and faster printing

Should also fit any other printer with 8mm rod

I've been looking all over for this!!! I bought my electronics from MakerFarm and they had originally these compact holders for my Prusa Air2. I snapped one of them (they were getting old) and the other "straight" holders would extend out too far (they would trigger on the Y-bed edge instead of the linear bearing pillow blocks) which would chop 15-25 mm off of my Y-Axis! I'm so relieved I found this... I temporarily used one of the "extended" holders to print these and now I'm at full printing capacity. Whew!

I accidentally over tightened one of these and bent my endstop. Has anyone else had any issues with that?

no, M3x20mm
