A solution to add cable chain to your stepper motors via the bottom by the cable connector. Two versions= Either direction + both ends of the chain connection (e.g. male+female) The plate attaches with screws at the bottom of Nema17 stepper motors. They are specifically designed for the wide cable connection. (Printed part pictures above show the connection). Version 1: Reversible = This design has the female connection and allows the cable chain to be attached in either direction. (up or down). Also allows when in an up position to drop slightly. (perfect for Prusa i3 rework z motors, allows cable to drop below the y structure). Version 2: Opposite Connection = Same design, with the opposite connection (male). :) The cable chain file is also added.
Part of our Revolution Media Group Cable Chain System. The system allows you to create a complete cable covering system that changes direction, attaches to motors, power boxes, buttons... All cables covered! We designed this cable chain system for our Revolutioni3 3D printers. A fleet of our printers are in Ryerson University which is Canada's leading technical institute. We designed the cable chain system for Ryerson University to protect all cables as the printers are moved around classrooms, and many students are handling them.
Revolution Media Group is a proud member of the open source 3D printing community. We are firm believers in the open source concept that promotes payment to designers. Small amounts of payment for hours of design work allows designers and artists to keep doing what they love and share their talent. We support pinshape as they are promoting payment to the designer. Welcome to the evolution of the revolution.
