A cable chain is the perfect way to help protect flexible cables and hoses and to limit the directions in which they flex, you have probably seen many printer upgrades that include the addition of one or more cable chains. While there are many downloadable designs for small cable chains, this cable chain differs for a few reasons;
- It's big, with 70mm of internal width will have enough space for all the cables and hoses you might need for larger machines.
- It doesn't droop, like an off the shelf cable chain, it wont flex backward.
- It's designed to secure cables with cable tie slots.
This cable chain was designed for a Farmbot and has just enough room to carry all the required cabling as well as a vacuum hose and water hose.
The chain is easy to assemble and requires no extra parts. Just print them out and clip them together. The retaining clips are removable to allow easy installation of the cables.
