As far as my printer had the extruder cables hitting my prints I was in the need of make them to be organized in a better way.

Also here is a fan spacer to prevent the fan´s stock turbine sound.


Print all pieces, 0.25 height will be fine. (I only needed 20 chain links).

The first link of the chain in the carriage must be clipped reversed to allow a "back" torsion so the chain will not pop out when reaching the X maximun extension to the right.

Also every link must be cutted a little on top to pass through the wires easily.

If the chain hits the right side when homing Y at X´s max print the right side anticrash to prevent it.

In order to apply this upgrade you will need to increase the wires lenght so you will lost maybe your warranty.

Here is a video showing the chain working:

That's a MUCH better cable arrangement than stock. I was thinking of doing something very similar to this, glad I decided to see if somebody else had modded their Creatr yet! :)

Hy Zabana,
thanks a lot for your printing !!
It seems to be really interesting and I will try to make it.
Could you put upload each part alone please ?
In fact, I tried to print a another project from you and some are not ok.
And in this case each part takes less time to print and will have a better perimeter aspect (due to travel movement).
It will be really great

Thanks a lot!

About the pieces, they are in fact separated, them all but the chain links, but this is a "remix" so you can download the original piece and print as many as you need ;)
