The original did not print that well on my printer, resulting in a lot of friction. I changed the geometr to suit my application.
Finally I ended up with a number of parameters that can be changed in SolidWorks to change the dimensions.
The default demension gives small links with 14mm between the link points (total length 24.1 mm), 11.4 mm heigh and 18 mm wide. The opening for the cables is 8x10 mm, just large enough for my small application.
Play around with the SolidWorks model and change the height, length and width parameters to change this.
There are no end-pieces yet but it should not be that hard to add your own ;)
Add any number you like to your build tray and start printing.
Standard size results in 14mm between the links + 10mm extra so 10 links give a chain of 150 mm length.
The SolidWorks file is for version 2010
