3D model description

Remix of Sidewayz_Control's Cable support for the Creality CR-6 SE.
(I can't get the Thingiverse "This is a Remix" option to work right now, no idea why)

The cable support itself is remixed to add a clamp for the PTFE tube. The strain gauge sensor can be triggered by the PTFE tube pulling up on the hot end, which occurs if the gauge is zero'ed e.g. in the middle of the bed or to the right, and the hot end is then moved to the far left. Controlling the printer via the touch screen generally avoids this issue as it forces homing (which re-zeros the strain gauge) prior to actions like bed levelling - but when driven from elsewhere (e.g. Octoprint) it can often be a problem.

The second model is a replacement for the X Axis limit switch and belt drive cover. Sidewayz_Control's piece here is a slide-on outer cover, but I found that could slide off and could also get in the way of the hot end assembly triggering the X limit switch. This is a replacement for the cover that comes with the printer - quite a bit more fiddly to install, however it keeps everything the same size so the X limit switch is fine, and doesn't slide about at all.

...tried your cable support and found the sensor light was being triggered on the right 1/3 of the buildplate...seems the position of the PTFE clamp is off by a hair. I went back to my Thingiverse 4682557 stand-alone bracket and now have no triggered events anywhere. Not sure what to recommend ...but... your X limit switch cover is terrific...a definite keeper

..you might want to add a comment to be sure to file out the inside of the ptfe clamp enough to allow for some freedom of vertical movement of the tube..

...have tried a bunch of cable/tube support prints...like this setup the best
