By mounting my y endstop on the back rod, rather than on the y carriage rods, I was able to get another 5-10 mm of bed distance.


  1. Adjust SCAD switch_dist variable for the hole spacing for your y endstop switch.
    (the included STL is for a mechanical switch whose holes are 9mm apart)
  2. Export and Print STL
  3. Install on rear threaded rod with nylock nuts such that endstop touches lower Prusa bed.

Optional: uncomment the comments in front of the nut traps to print for use with non-nylock nuts.

Thanks to triffid_hunter for uploading a parameterized endstop which was easy to modify.
AFAIK this is the only parameterized endstop, the rest of ones on thingiverse are STLs.

Nice idea. I've printed the STL, but the SCAD file is garbled and doesn't yield a valid object. It would be worth updating though, because it is a good approach.

Great! but the SCAD file seems out of sync with the instructions?
