Quick and dirty clip-on guide piece for filament and for the extruder's RJ45 cable.

For use with tall MakerBot Cupcake 3D printers that have a separated top, such as those upgraded using Zydac's Z Axis Extender Kit http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4716


My slicing:
Skeinforge 35, extra shells at 0, solid surface thickness (layers) at 4


  1. Try clipping the printed part onto the "roof" piece of laser cut wood

  2. The fit should be snug, but not crushing

  3. If the fit isn't right, you could sand or bolt the clip, or edit the included OpenSCAD source and re-print.
