Yes the network cable works great all the way. I did double up the conductors inside the cables but don’t think there is enough IR drop to make it necessary. For my 2′ x 3′ setup I really don’t need a drag chain. The cable does not seem to get in the way at all. I do have the router AC and vacuum hose hanging from a hook in the ceiling. Here is an old remix post of the setup http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:858155 . I did not post the files for the RJ45 panel mounts, let me know if you want them.
