I've been seeing the cable chains for reprap and cupcake, and thought I would share my mill-able file.
Cable chain for 3d milling, one link complete.


Currently set to mill from 1/4 inch thick material.

I can't for the life of me generate any gcode. Cambam won't do it, HeeksCNC can't. FreeMill can't. All indicate errors with geometry. Am I the only one with this problem? If so, please help!

Is there a filetype that would play better with your software that I can post?

If you have an .nc file I can try running that right from Mach3! Thanks for the help.

Where do you house your CAD files? I'd like to tweak for my 3D printer. Please.... :-D

1/4 inch is implied, right?

yes 1/4 inch, sorry I'm imperial-centric. :-[

Made any of these links yet?

I did make some, and the tolerances were good and tight.
