This is what I did. It has been working out great and is really cheap. it is just hotwheels track with notches cut into it and zip ties to help hold the wires in. if you are on a budget, this works great!

I ended up using drag chain, but before that had a beautiful monstrosity.

And before that I just stood there holding them.

You certainly want to keep the wires out of the way of the wheels, which would cause the machine to miss many steps and destroy your work, at best.
I'd get your 30-50 dollars out and buy the drag chain.
