Excellent design. Very rigid with none of the twisting and bending the most common designs have.

Would this one fit also the CR10S Pro? My cable just broke and burned - so I need a reliable solution. Any recommendation is welcome!

anyone know if this will work for the CR-10 S5?

I tried it, 16 of each. Installed it in the video as shown, but.... The cables of my cr10s are to short so I have to put my control box directly diagonally next to the printer cause I have some feetsunder my control box. We will see how the future goes with this :)

whats the width of the chain. I have found 7 and 8 mm drag chain on amazon and I'm curious if that will fit your ends

I didnt understand the video clearly but I tried and it works great but its not working with the ultimate knobs. The screw which fixes the connection part is colliding with the knob.

did I miss where it says how many chains I need to print?

nvm printed it at 0.1 slowly and I decided I should just buy a chain on aliexpress for smoother movement. :)

Cracking design and works brilliantly. Well done and thank you

I have a question, with the Y axis all the way back, how far beyond the stepper motor does this go? I only have enogh room for my printer, not so much as another inch on my counter. Will this require my printer to be moved forward more than a stock one?

Hi, do I need to print any of the parts with supports ? thank you

Not for all parts.
I've made all parts except the "Heatbed_Start" without supports ;)

Hi, yes you need supports to print.


Great design, Using it for my CR-10S, but could you adjust it for the CR-10S5 and S4 as well?
Because the S5 has a different design under the heated bed.


Hi, thank you.

I need one CR-10S5 here, than i can redesign it :)
I need the right length and height or you have full CAD design of CR-10S5.

Hi, nice work and thanks for the effort but after 3 attempts, I give up. The links are very unstable and disconnected every time by the force of the cable. No chance to get it workable.

I'm having issues also, they don't hold tight and they don't orient the same way they are in the video.

I have printed it many times and it works very well. I use PETG filament. Because of the direction I do not understand exactly what you mean. I see there are problems with the users here, in the parts will be constructed a little thicker so that the better hold together. :)

Hello, can I help you somehow? Which material did you use? I think your attitudes are important to the result.

Just commenting to let people know they will have to have their control box almost right up against the printer for this to work. You'll only have about 7 to 8" cable left to work with. I ended up buying some extension cables.

you're right or or you use a cable extension

indeed one of the reason I have not installed this yet

Are you sure this is a drag chain and not Space Invaders?

hehe very nice picture :)

why there is a hex nut entry at the bed bracket?

Hello, if the bracket is not strong enough, you can additionally fix it with a screw.

This is excellent! What size screws is this designed for? M3, M4, or M5? And how long? I always like to use the largest size possible. Thank you!

Hi, thank you. You can use M4 and 10mm long screws.

Update: 8mm is the right length

Installing it right now and the maximum length screw you can use is 8mm. 10mm is too long. Luckily I have some of those, too :)

Oh ok, thank you for update

One more question... Can I print this in PLA? I'm worried about the bed part melting. Thanks!

I think you can use PLA, the bed bracket have no contact with heatbed.

Thank you. Printing this tonight!

this looks very good
one small improvement proposal would be to make the stress relief on the bottom behind the bend, so you only have linear movement on the cables.
I might print this once i get new filament. Thanks for your work!
