This is a clip that snaps to the gearbox of a MakerGear stepper motor extruder and holds the wires from your hot end to keep them from hitting your X-axis belt and from flexing as your x-axis moves.

It was designed parameticly in openSCAD, so you can edit the size of the clip to hold differnet sized wires or clip to different sized cylendars.

I use it with a single wire clip, but you can have 2 or 3 ( or more, edit the SCAD file!) if you need them.


Print it on a 3D printer. I use two of them (one "left" and one "right") to fully capture the wire, but a single thick one may work for you. See the photo for how it works. I updated the 1-clip_thick stl file to use a 34mm diameter instead of the actual measured MG gearbox size of 35mm. It snaps over and holds a bit tigher.
