Minimalistic Z-Probe

Minimalistic Z-Probe by Zaggo Sep 25, 2010

Description

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.

Hey Zaggo, love your design.

I was going to make one for mine, but the older acrylic platforms won't fit it. But I had a brainwave and came up with something even simpler:

would it be possible to put some little printed ramps on each end of the build platform that it could ride up after it aligns the z-axis and then it could detect the x and y ends as well?
genious!!
