My Z endstop worked well once I calibrated the machine -BUT- every time you slightly hit the endstop the Z calibration was gone du to a jiggling holder.

So: I designed this one with some additional mm of guidance on the 8mm rod.

3.5mm (2x M3 screws for clamping)
2.5mm (2x M2 screw for endstop; 10mm dist.)

...you can also glue your endstop to your holder if you don't get M2 screws.


If you do not have something to print at the same bunch print at least 2 of them due to the heat of your printed filament and the thin wall width. (Of course you only need one....)

To remove all knobs caused by printing use a 8mm drill to remove them!

Thanks by the way to rrhb for the y endstop!

Hmmm the Z endstop isn't in the zip file.
There is a z_endstop_1.stl from the files tab...
I guess I can just mesh them together...

can you make these for 10mm rod also

Not too much time the next days - but pretty simple to design on your own ;-)
