cablemount1 by Seadevil Apr 17, 2013


5th attempt at a cable mount. (drawn in sketchup, cleaned with netfabb) I had problems with the clip being too brittle and tried to fix it by fattening the clip. Didn't work? Maybe I need to change some slic3r setting?

This is supposed to hold the '3/8" Flex Tubing' cable sleeve I got from Home Depot (part# FLX-3810T). The bottom foot should mount on the ord-bot hadron x carrage using the 2 holes on the upper right side of the carriage plate.

I finally got #5 to print as a usable part. Previous prints were too brittle. I used 1.75mm white ABS (measured 1.60-1.63) and set slic3r to use 120% extrusion. (Previous parts had linear voids at fracture points.)

Tested this against the Tubing Sleeve and it is a tight fit. Once I mount it on the printer I'll post a picture showing the fit.
