how does the Bed link connect to the Bed corner ?

it is not connected to the corner of the heat bed the wire there is strong enough to hold it. But you have to connect it with the part "Kette klein unten" to the 40x 40 frame

Do you put the X axis and extruder ribbon cable in the long chain as well ?

great job! fits amazingly well on ender 3 pro! thx

Can someone explain what the 'unten' parts are for please? I can't see them in the pictures.

Don't worry. I've figured it out :-)

a short question just for my personal understanding....
Why should we print two „Kette groß unten“? I have printed 2 but it seems that one is enough to fix the chain.

Regards the Schroeder

BTW... The chain is great and fits perfect.
Printed with PLA (white) with 203 and 60 degree

nur ne kleine Frage für mein Verständnis...
Warum soll „Kette groß unten“ 2 Mal gedruckt werden. Hab alles fertig und hab nur eines zum fixieren gebraucht!

Gruß der Schroeder!

Mal so nebenbei, Die Kette ist echt klasse und passt perfekt.
Gedruckt mit PLA (weiß) bei 203 & 60 Grad.

Der zweite Halter für unten verbessert die Stabilität ist aber nicht notwendig.

The second "Kette groß unten" is just for more stability but not necessary.


Thanks for repling! Do you plan to make chain from extruder to hot end?

The schroeder

Danke für die antwort. Planst Du auch eine Kette von Extruder zu HotEnd zu machen?

Der Schroeder

What's the best way to print this? With or without support? I'm really having a hard time planning that print at the moment ... ;)

Print Setup:

1 x Motor Anschluss: 20% infill, 0.15 Layer, Height, no support.
1 x Kette klein unten: 20% infill, 0.15 Layer, Height, support on.
19 x Kette klein: 20% infill, 0.15 Layer, Height, no support.
28 x Kette groß: 20% infill, 0.15 Layer, Height, no support.
2 x Kette groß unten: 20% infill, 0.15 Layer, Height, support on.

Ii added G-Code files for the Ender 3

1 x Motor Anschluss
1 x Kette klein unten
19 x Kette klein
28 x Kette groß
2 x Kette groß unten

How many of each part is required?

Wow! Best cable solution for Ender 3!
Fitted my Ender 3 pro as well.
Very smart design and easy to attach without unplugging cables.
