This thing will allow you to mount a limit switch to the height specified above the mounting bolts. I am using 80/20, but should work with any T slot, bolts, screws or fasteners. Features adjustable slots for the limit switch.

This thing is completely 100% parametric. It is super easy to customize the: height above the T-Slot, the limit switch hole spacing, hole sizes, thickness, mount width, etc.

Because it is so customizable, I hope that it can be used for many installations.

All units are in MM. Enjoy.


  1. Download OpenSCAD.

  2. Download and open the OpenSCAD file.

  3. The OpenSCAD file is well documented, but the primary thing you will likely need to change is the height of the top limit switch hole from the mounting hole.

  4. Hit Compile and Render (CGAL).

  5. Export to STL.

  6. Slice in your favorite software. I used 50% fill and it is plenty stout.

  7. Print!

Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to request for improvements.
