This thing provides the means to effectively manage cables on a stock Printerbot. It connects the x axis (X-CARRIAGE to the X-MOTOR mount) carrying the extruder and hot end cables. Continuing on it then connects the z axis (X-MOTOR mount to the PB-BASE) carrying extruder, hot end, x end stop, and x motor cables.
I use cable chain links from thing # 1978 for the x axis. I created larger links (1056-01) for z axis. Larger links are required to fit all the cables running between the X-MOTOR and PB-BASE.
The bracket (1054-01) clips to stock PrintrBot PB-X-MOTOR-V2.
Note: For my inplamentaion only the extruder motor cables had to lengthened/spliced. My hot end cables and x motor fit with stock lenght but only had a inch or two extra. Depending on you construciton it is possible end cables and x motor fit.
