We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
My Shapercube was sent with tubing for the cables but I didn't really like the way it moved or was held on the different parts, so I bought some Igus E2 micro Series 06 chains (ref: 06-10-018, Inner width 10mm) and designed some parts to install them on my printer.
Print as much parts as you need, I'd say:
1 x Nema23 Cover wHoles
1 x Holder Ends RAMPS Side
3 x End Hole
3 x End NoHole
2 x Right AngleBracket
And Assemble with Bolts and Nuts or PLA rivets for the Brackets and the Ends that go on the X-axis.
Using 3mm screws without redrilling the holes should be enough, no nuts needed.
On the Extruder parts, I just used two screws directly in the Nema17 holder, A small re-design of this part would be a good idea to make the assembly easier.
The chain-ends were taken from the Igus website, and modified a little bit to my needs. I only got one size, that why it's doubled on the Y-axis. They exist in other size, it would be better with 20 or 30mm space inside.
