the two replacement pieces are used, one which fastens to the Y frame, the other that fixes to the frame, the cable chain joins these 2 new items
Please explain further how the chain attaches to the underside of the y carriage and to the frame.

Thanks

Print, attach, wire up enjoy a minimalist i3.

one end of the chain is secured with a self tapper into the top of the MGS mount.
revised scad to be more parametric

I am not 100% happy with the height of the X mount, but the scad is parametric, so modify to your heart's content!

I have now added the Y Cable Chain mounts, and will have more cable ducting and the LCD box and Ramps box as further development before this item is completed.

I originally avoided endstops, but will now be adding these into my existing X end cable chain mount along with some nice Y and Z mounts that are fairly lean
