Description

After the 3rd time my cable snagged on the upper frame, I decided to make a quick cable guide. I'm not sure why this wasn't included in the printer design as it seems like it would be a common issue even with the recommended AMS locations.

 

There are lots of ways you could achieve this, mine rides on the z axis and holds the end of the cable far enough in it doesn't snag on the corner of the frame.

 

It should snap into place with a little effort.

Print is fine but it doesn't fit on my a1

It's a very tight fit to get on, but then somehow is a bit loose once installed. It rocks back and forth along the printers Y axis. I still really like it though and continue to use it.

Yeah its the same for me. I probably could maybe make it a bit more snug on the lower part, but it seemed to work fine and is a bit of a gamble of how uniform their molds are.

A must print in my opinion. Helps a lot with the cable sagging.

I printed the 0.2 PLA version & it fit perfectly fine! Great design & works well with the cable guide on the other side (from another user)

Great idea and design. I ended up not using it because of the very tight curve on the bottom part but it works well and the fit is perfect!
