Did you use whole 1m of it?

No, around half of it

You probably used a different chain. 7x7 is too small for anything.

It's the one i used. That's what i liked about it. It's small and very light. You can fit all the cabels in it without problem, but you have to take the connectors off to put it through the holes.

Where is part for Y cable?

Not here. I'm not using chain for Y. Maybe someone else made it.

I used half of the chain for the x-axis and the other half for the y-axis. I created models for the end-segments: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2361199

Can you get the wires in and out without having to thread them through?

It looks great with this chain, but it's a total nightmare to thread through, especially if you want to have this wires:

  • x2 heater
  • x3 endstop
  • x4 E-motor
  • x2 E-sensor
  • x2 E-heater
  • x2 fan
  • x2 other fan

Now imagine that you need to change wires for heater...

No, chain have closed links. Also it's quite small hole so you have to remove the white connector to get it through. But its fits all wires perfectly
