Does anyone has the lower part (steppermountbottom) that could fit a 40x20mm fan? Thanks!

open cable chain

I printed everything out, then realized the top bracket that mounts to the X motor won't fit because I have a dampener on it and the lip is too close. Crap!

If u brake the clip that fits on the metal part I think it can work, I've recived on Friday a bunch of dampeners , tomorrow when I get home I'll upload a dampener version :)

Awesome, I appreciate it! I cut the clip that fits next to the metal arm, but it falls loose. I can wait :)

updated mounts for dampener, if they are like mine they are 6mm , first check it, than check your nema dimension, usually on ender is 34mm :)

Last week, I printed the 34mm bracket. Today I finished my cable chain, so I assembled everything. How tight should it be? It clips on, but keeps falling off during use. The "clip" part of it has a bit of a gap. I thought maybe I printed the wrong one, so I just did the 39mm one and that's definitely the wrong size as it won't fit at all. I also measured my damper, and it's 6mm like yours.

I printed the 34mm one at .2 with 30% infill. I'll try printing another one tomorrow in case I screwed something up.

I attached a picture of a top-down view of the X motor to show the gap on the bracket.

added a version qithn that 1mm gap filled, i think i'll start to thinker a different part mod, too many versions and too much possibilities is the wrong direction, thanks for ur patience and time

I have a similar problem like RudestBuddhist. It looks like they moved the metal plate, so there is not enough space for the "clip", see picture. I guess one solution would be to decrease the thickness of the clip and maybe make it a little bit longer.
Would be gladful for your help!

I just printed the latest one. It fits like a glove. Thank you so much!

Sad to hear it, I don't have dampeners on my ender so this parts are not tested, I've just changed the dimensions hoping that they would have been right for the work, seems there is a gap of about 1.5mm, tomorrow when I'm home I'll try to figure it out,

Thanks a ton RaffoSan. I will do some low quality test prints, then a final when I find one that fits.

Seems like the link to the Open Drag Chain (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2146995) doesn't work anymore. Any alternatives?

Hi, can you write where can i find the print design that you have put on the extruder in the first picture?

I think u refer to this https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2456930

at the moment I have removed it, seems that my spring generates too mush pressure and the exstrusion gives me problems

okay, thank you, by the way the chain is not too heavy for the engine in the z axis??
the engine heats up too much?

the Z axis moves slow so there should be no problems in the weight, still havent had èproblems for it, the cover on the exstruder isnt really big should not be a problem for the heat, maybe i can value to reduce just the weight of the chain but so far it works nice

ok, i can only print and check ;-) thank you.
