Made this assembly for my Anet A8, and I love it. Made a diverter for the chain when mounting on the left side of the hot bed so as to clear the extruder when homing or printing to the outer limits of the bed.

It is better to make the beginning and the end of the chain mirror and place it on the right. The extruder is in the "Home" position, will not hurt the circuit.

Ciao. Volevo usare la tua catena per alimentare il mio bed sul Tatara ma ho problemi...
Riesciresti mica a creare la maglia finale della catena per il frame portabed del Tatara? Grazie in anticipo.

Anyone else find this doesn't fit? Mine hits the acrylic and there's nowhere for the wires to go.

I had the same issue. I ended up taking 1.5mm out of the middle of the chain links and the connecting part of the mounting brackets.Now it doesn't hit the side of the acrylic.

how do i mount the piece to the hot bed

Printing your setup now.... chain moves flawlessly so far. Looking forward to installing this upgrade.

Any advice/ links to the x axis chain you used in conjunction with this?? Looking for something that runs as smooth as this one. I'm not sure what changes you made to the chain links or if they're compatable with other chain setups.

Please advise,

the chain links are the same ones that most people are using. i just changed the mounting pieces a bit. as for the y chain i started to make one from scratch, but havent worked on it for a while. not sure i want it or not.

Hi friend, could you indicate if the design is valid for a 10X20 string. Thank you

Yes, I have a commercial chain, and it is 10x20 measurement, is your design valid for those chains ?.

oh. i dont know. this works with a printed chain.

I'll complete the chain, to make sure, thanks for your response. a greeting
