A quick and dirty design to use cable chains on the new Prusa MK3.

you have to rotate the Cable holder 90° so it lies flat. it is still little bit difficult to print but works ok with supports

For the chains and adapter to the heatbed just use the same as for the MK2.

i just mixed the files from Prusa and the work from Aaron Yourk:

Can someone post a picture of this installed on an mk3. I just got my kit and have yet to open the box. Out of town for another two weeks working. It's killing me having it waiting for me at home. Not to sound ignorant, but i looked at pictures of the mk2 with chains and I can't figure out were this tall part goes on the mk3.

Thanks for the great design, I noticed that in the MK2 chain build notes (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1725591) that we can no longer use the spool holder if we convert over to the chain? At least that's what was said for the MK2, is that also true if we convert over to the chain on the MK3?

Good work on the cable holder. I am personally not a fan of zip ties and was planning on coming up with a 2-piece version where the cable chain end slides over or snaps onto the cable holder to hold the cables in place.

Thanks to you too, ayourk.
A great mod that looks awesome on my MK3.

i did not put too much effort in it, just fidelling wioth a mix of Step's and Stl's in Solidworks.

i am looking forward to what you will come up with

Thanks for the great mod!
Works perfect.
