Printable Drag Chain!
by gwc, published
A drag chain fully printable that only requires 2 M3 bolts, and 2 M3 nuts. The rest of the bolts that appear on the picture are optional for holding in place the wires.
Print the following items:
- 1x EslabnFinalM8-B.stl (End link that goes attached to a M8 rod)
- 1x EslabnFinalScrew-A.stl (end link that goes screwed to a board)
- ?x Eslabn.stl (normal links)
The heatbed of the Prusa Mendel (It 2) uses 11 normal links.
After you print you may need to drill the holes for a perfect fit and also sand the surfaces that are going to be in contact. Lubricant will help!
Note: when uniting the links together the A part of the links (the one with the big hole) may brake a bit. As long as the main circular structure is still in place it will work perfectly.
