3D model description

Remix X-axis from by The_Random_Engineer
Filament guide from by STIG_
Filament Sensor by Leo_N

I changed the original Anet A8 motherboard for a Ramps 1.4, so, i use the filament runout sensor, also, i have a extrusor fan removable, and i wanted a chain on X axis, so, i remixed three great work on one, with a bit personal modifications.

The leg for me is too short, because I have a glass on top of the bed.
The mesh is a little messy, because the original is also messy, and I had no way to repair it.

The top of filament sensor case have 4 neodymiun magnets 3x1,5.
The cable guide is a bit thin, so beware.

Designed with Freecad.

UPDATE 3/17/2018:
Version 2, for end of the extruder, increased the dimensions of the cable guide, reinforced some parts, to avoid deformations by the temperature in enclosures, like Ikea Lack.
I had printed all the pieces in PLA at 20% filling, and deformation occurred in some pieces, after several long sessions ..

Version 2, for Z_X_Motor_Chain_Mount.
A notch has been added so that the 20 tooth pulley does not touch the part. Added support so that the lowering of the cable, can be controlled with flanges.

The new version, have been printed in ABS 100% filled.
