Microswitch probe with magnetic attachment, primarily aimed at CoreXY 3d printers.
The objectives for this project are:
Most of the Klicky probe users are using klipper, there are some macros in here that ease the probing process, by automating the attach, dock and use of the probe.
Some work has been developed to have the same functionality on RRF.
It can also be used with the automatic Z calibration klipper plugin to effectively calculate the Z offset from the probe and from the Z endstop if your printers supports a Z endstop triggered by the nozzle (like most Voron's do)
Updated instructions provided by StefanRaatz. oc_geek and TurBoxxs were also a great help in refining and testing the CAD files. Garrettwp provided the initial revised macro files. User richardjm revised the macro variables and added some functions. Mental created the initial macro and one of the first magnetically attached microswitch probes.
Without them, and some others this effort would not be in the current state, many thanks to them all.
klicky early version.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version, check the klipper macros folder, it contains update instructions.
All the compatible printers require:
The CAD with all the files is located Here
Common Klicky STL's (parts that are common to all the printers) are located here. Printer specific STL are in each printer directory.
The probe accuracy output is better than a range of 0.025mm (difference between highest and lowest), and a standard deviation of 0.01mm.
There are no need for supports, recommended settings are 4 perimeters/top/bottom, at least 23% infill, the STL's are already oriented, you only need to send them to the slicer.
Each printer family/version has it's own mounting options, Bill of Materials, assembly instructions and dock/attach setup.
There are several micro sized Voron variants, most also support klicky, you can find more information on the site https://3dprintersforants.com/
It is working very well, if you decide to use it, give me feedback, either here, or on Voron discord, my discord user is JosAr#0517.
By standing on the shoulders of giants, lets see if we can see further.
