March 2, 2016 | ProgessTH We're still working out some details and still have to test this switch with an actual project but if you want to print it out or check out and improve upon the design files, they are all up on Thingiverse here.

We included the SketchUp 2015 file and the STL.

Follow on Facebook here or on Twitter here.

Right you are. If you or anyone else could find a simple way to achieve this action, with everyday, common materials, that would be great! One of the reasons this is all opensource is so that others can come in and improve upon this design. 

I will say this, I have learned quite a lot about microswitches since starting this project.

That's not a real micro switch.  It looks like one, but is only a simple switch.  

It doesn't have the snap action of a microswitch with the flat spring and curve spring arrangement.
