What BLTouch mount are you using? I'm thinking of converting my 3D Printer to a HyperCube Evolution, and I already have a BLTouch that I'd like to keep it for auto bed leveling. Thank you.

So my hevo is 300x300x600, the X chain is 20 links right? Any idea if this same setup will work for the bed, and how many links will be needed? Thanks

Hello No, I have no idea Sorry

Nice solution to having a very sorted printer.
The full chain is composed of 20 pieces and your printer is 300mm?

Thanks!

Hi loose for latency ...
My Z Movement is 200mm

I've just made one (about to post the make). For your reference, each chain piece adds 15mm of length to the chain, and the space available on the inside for cables is 12.7 x 8.6mm square.

Looks like a great solution. Have you tried routing it "upside down" so that the chain goes to the floor, rather than the Y cross-brace? I'm looking at doing a similar solution to you, but since heat bed cables are high current (I'm using 8 AWG wire on my big printer) I'm trying to minimise the cable lengths as much as I can.

Replying to myself, yes it works just fine in that orientation :-) Thanks for a great design.
