This is a faster printing cable chain with a simpler geometry than the others.

I was having some difficulties printing other cable chains so I decided to make my own. The cable channel is 1/2" wide and 3/8" tall. Each link adds 1/2" to the chain. The folding diameter is about 47mm (sorry for mixing units). The links stay together quite well.
If you find the links don't move well just exercise the joints for a few minutes and it should loosen right up.
In order to prevent the chain from curving print four at a time.
I'll add some end links soon for mounting to machines.
Just print 'em out and snap 'em together.
