Minimalistic Endstop for 8mm Shafts by rp_one_labs Jan 2, 2013

Description

Traditional fork style end stop wasn't good enough for me - too large and did not fit in my design. Minimalistic enstop was born to solve the problem, and it worked!

I actually milled those parts for couple of our first printers, then drilled holes. Material was 3/8" thick acetal sheet. Printed part inherited dimensions from milled part, it works as it should. If you have plugged holes - then increase them with drill bit, it is DIY design.

Did you have a layer height in mind when you designed this part? The .3mm 220% extrusion width Prusa i3 settings are not working well with the 2mm holes.

Have you thought about a version that uses tie wraps instead of nuts and bolts?

Loved your assembly diagram! Thank you!
