Hello, I have a new question.
I printed and installed your stop but I'm stuck with grbl. I can not make it work.
Which parameters must be defined? Fixed limit, soft limit, reference point (guess yes)?

I tried several settings but it does not stop at switching or goes into alert mode.
I'm looking for help then :)

I recommend the following guide for the "Homing" in GRBL: https://github.com/gnea/grbl/wiki/Set-up-the-Homing-Cycle

Regarding the hard/soft limit question: You could try the "hard limit" setting first to see if it's working in your installation. From my own experience and from what I've read this mode is very susceptible to electromagnetic inteferences which will cause a lot of false alerts (especially if you use a relay to switch your Dremel/spindle).
That's why I switched over to the "soft limit" setting which is working great after some small adjustments.

So please start with the guide and if you have additional questions afterwards I will try to help.

Thank you, I'll check this

I'm needing the Z axis part to use 10mm rods.
Is it possible to adapt to your design for this?


thank you for this remix, I will change some pieces
