3D model description

I went with the NG Designs cable chain as I like how lite it was compared to the other.

UPDATE 2-4-2022: I have added a bolt on extruder stepper mountedcable chain mount. You will need to remove the (4) Screws on the bottom of the stepper motor and replace with (4) M3 x 50mm long flat head screws. These are available on Amazon as well as Some hardware stores may have them as well. I also moved the extruder plug location to the back. The NG design is nice, but I have had it fall off to many times. No more!

This "remix" addresses the issues I observed. I reviewed other peoples additions and gave them a try and they all gave me some sort of an issue. So I created my own remix, so some of these items may look like another part but I fully modeled these on my own.

Large Chain anchor V2 was my second attempt. I ended up measuring and modeling the extrusion to create this finalized design. It hugs the extrusion with a light pressure and the cable chain fits well on the top part. To much pressure bows the top open, so beware!

Heat bed cover- this one was frustrating. After multiple trys it finally worked. Beware you may need to do a little sanding/filing where the clip engages, per the picture my pencil tip is pointing to the offending edge.

The above two are loosely based on:

small chain anchor- I like how the original desin anchored, it was just on a scew- so I fixed it. This anchor is 9mm offset and aligns well to the heatbed point.

Check out my other things!
