The skp file for this looks like it was saved in meters instead of millimeters. The object is so gigantic it was hard to even tell it was grouped (?). To work on it I had to download the stl and then import it into Sketchup, then use cleanup.

I added a third hole in front of the two to use for mounting. Then opened one side of the hole to a slot to make mounting easy. Ended up opening all of the holes to slots to avoid deforming the plastic while a fixing the bolts.

Works like a charm - x, y, and z.

My concern is that there is no flex to the endpoint of the stop.
Microswitches have some play in them after the switch point.
Since this switch is bolt to bolt, and presumably solidly mounted to the machine, then when the switch is activated, there will be hard mechanical resistance to any overshoot on the electronics/stepper motor motion.

I'll try to work up a design in Openscad to show what I mean.
But great idea, exactly what the Reprap project is built for.

fantastic two things left to start using it- integred smooth rod mount, and some sort of Z axis hight adjustment

Man that's one of those things thats so simple no one thinks about... nice thinking, makes me want to replace my micro switchs! :D

Neat concept, we should be able to print the whole thing soon :)
