MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
This is a quick design I made to mount a 9 gram servo between 2 limit switches, the purpose of it is to allow triggering a DC motor to power left and right, with only the servo driven from an RC transmitter.
It means there is no need for a motor driver required from the RC transmitter, it acts like a large relay switch, a bit more simple to use.
See the images for how I used it with 2 limit switches on a pericope lift mechanism, and wiring schematic I based it on.
Search online for a Youtube video on how to make it work, it's hard to describe it all here.
There are 2 versions for different sized switches, print one and see if it fits your switches, the switch I ended up using was for the small version.
Here are the ones I used and the servo is only a 9 gram servo:
