So, I was building my first (MP)CNC, when my daughter laid claim to it..!! She wanted her own 3D Printer, so I conceded and gave it to her, and well, here it is.February 24, 2016 at 7:05 pm #8235
Awesome job with the cable management! I need to order some drag chain for when I start wiring my build, but I doubt I will get it as clean as yours.February 24, 2016 at 10:29 pm #8241
Why cheat and buy one when you can print the chain tooFebruary 25, 2016 at 6:00 am #8243
I ordered it from Amazon (Black Plastic Drag Chain Cable Carrier 10 x 15mm for CNC Router Mill). It was a tight fit, you might want to go to with 10mmx20mm.
The Drag Chain would get caught on one of the exposed bearings on top, so I used a scrap piece of acrylic I had laying around to support the DC. I got darn lucky that the acrylic was just long enough:)
BTW, it took FOREVER for the Drag Chain to arrive, via slow boat from China.March 22, 2016 at 3:34 pm #9492
Link for printed chain parts?March 22, 2016 at 6:51 pm #9499
I’m currently printing this one. I’ll have to figure out a way to attach them, but they’re the first ones I’ve found that doesn’t require support material to print.
