I was pretty concerned about people telling that their endstop fails crashing hardly the extruder into the glass-plate with a very seriously risk of being broken.
So before to experience such a bad situation I worked on an easily piece wich prevents that kind of situation.


Instructions are simple:

-Print the file
-Remove the back pannel
-Unscrew one z spindle bolt and pass it through the first hardstopper base hole and mid tight it
-Do the same with the second and secure it firmly

P.S: I printed mine at 0'3mm per layer, this piece doesn´t need a big resolution.

Check the clearance before printing! My Creatr actually needs a hardstop with 120mm height (instead of 110mm). The range of my springs is just 5mm so the hardstop needs to be quite accurate to be of any use.

The yellow film is Kapton tape onto the glass. Now I use to cover it with a thin cape of abs+acetone.

Great solution, thx!. Can you tell me what the yellow plate is? My leapfrog has a glassplate where I stick a Avery sticker on it. Is this yellow a special cover/sticker to hold the object easy en losen it easy too? The problem with my sticker is that I had to replace it every 10 prints because than its damage because of the (to) good connection with the printed object.
