How did you mount part cooling when using this autoleveling effector. Mine with a V6 is too short to fit most coolers since it holds the V6 a little high and requires clearance for the action of the auto leveling.

Thanks for optiswitch mount.

does it accurate with optical switch?

Nice design. I had only mechanical switches, so made my own version: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1724095

Kossel - mechanical switch mount for nylon autoleveling effector

Cool to see! Not sure if it really matters witch switch you take.
How is your experiance?

that effector uses a different type of switch. Its switch is mounted the other way.
I have been trying to find that stl for this effector but having no luck. It was in the makergeek kossel kit a while back.

if anyone has this effector stl. please post it.

Hi Xile6,
Good to know but i use this switch as it is available in abundance.
Do yourself a favour and order the chinese one, it is way more stronger and accurate than your printing will ever be in the next 10 years.

yea im all about using what you got.
thats why i was looking for the stl. I didnt feel like waiting a month to get the effector in.
I have an autolevel effector that uses a microswitch but the probe repeatably is not as good as i would like.
but thanx i might just order one and wait

It took a lot of searching but I finally found the stl for it and instructions!

I didn't want to wait a month to get the part.

@rwubbels great idea using optical switch!
