This is a derivate of the Z-Probe, using a micro servo and a minimalistic approach without any printed parts.

Besides a micro servo, you just need 2 paper clips, a M3x20mm bolt (16mm might be also ok), two M3 nuts and some electrical tape.


See here for more information and a video, how to build this thing:
