The optical endstop is a reliable endstop / switch solution for any type of 3D printers and other CNC and/ or 3D tools.
RepRap Cartesian axes all need a datum (also known as home position or end-stop) to reference their movements. At the start of each build each axis needs to back up until the datum point is reached. For RepRap, we use one opto-switch for each axis to define its position. The opto switches also help protect the machine from moving past its intended range and damaging itself.
