If you can mail me the FCAD files for the two covers I'll have a go at updating them for the Mk3S.

I have just tried fitting the Y axis covers to the I3 Mk3S heat bed, but they don't seem to fit. The electrical connection crimped connectors foul the covers, and the electrical connection screws foul the top cover. I suspect that for the I3 MK3S the covers need to be a bit longer, with pockects for the electrical connection screw heads, that would match with the covers supplied.

In the I3MK3S the X axis cable bundle has a nylon? filament running through it which is anchored in the X axis housing and the einsy housing. It seems to me that, so far, this is doing a fairly good job of managing the flexing of the X axis cable bundle. In this design are there housings for this filament, or is it just clamped along with the rest of the cable bundle?
I would like to use the design to control the bed cable and x axis motor cable, as their managment seems to me to be a poor design.

Hi, there is no need anymore to use the nylon guide.

Dude that is a sweet z-chain design? Mind if I convert mine to something like that? I keep having issues with the smaller chain flipping around and breaking itself...
