The issue I have with the effector microswitch is that there is inherently slop in the mechanism and my distrust of microswitches. My cheap Micromake Chinese delta came with one that was incredibly sloppy. Even after some hacking to get it stable enough to print its replacement (lol) it's probably still the weak link in the system. It is kinda nice having a spring-loaded hot end though, for the inevitable crashes. I oedered the 0.25" ones but looks like you used the 0.5". This is the first I've heard of a Trinket. I'll have to look into that :-) I was going to try to wire them straight into the digital in. My FSRs arrived today but I'm still trying to get this $%#@ to print accurately enough to make new parts. By the time that's done, my AZSMZ board will be in and I'll be starting all over! lol

That's good to know. I was thinking of mounting them in the effector as that would solve the heat issue (if there is one) and keep them independent of the bed weight.

I thought there were temperature issues using the FSRs on a heated bed as the bed temp exceeded the FSR's rating?
