Adjustable Z Axis End Stop

Adjustable Z Axis End Stop by acolwell Jan 16, 2011

Description

This is a derivative of natko's "Z Axis End Stop - Minimalist" ( thingiverse.com/thing:5457 )

I simply added an adjustable piece that let me use the original endstop holes on the Cupcake case. The slots facilitate coarse adjusting while the set screw allows for fine adjustment.

I've included natko's STLs here since they are both needed to create this thing. ZstopA.stl is only needed to rebuild z-axis-endstop-v2.stl from the .scad file.

This was designed for my MakerBot that has a lowrider xy carriage ( thingiverse.com/thing:4213 ) in it. I have not tested whether the slots are long enough to support the standard xy carriage. Luckily the design is parametric so it should be easy to extend if you need to.

Done, sorry just left it at default hadnt thought about licensing

The endstop is working great for me. Thanks for the inspiration.

If you change the license on your thing to allow derivatives, I'll mark this one as a derivative of yours.

Take care.

Dohhhh, nice one, well why didnt I think of that.

Hope the end stop works well for you it did for me, although the adjusting allen bolt is hard to get at and if dropping the switch some times you have to push it back down.

Nice one again 8-)
