I'm working on building a giant 6ft x 4ft laser cutter and I needed a cable chain solution for the X axis which needs a way to elevate and mount the chain on the moving assembly and a stationary mount for the beam piece itself.


Print and use VHB tape to mount it. For the interconnect pieces of chain use the ones from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11978

Very slick. I wonder if it could be adapted for the Replicator X-axis cable. Much smaller, but still needs some control to keep the cables from rubbing against the belts.
