Drag Chain Brackets

Post by defect » Sat Jul 01, 2017 4:33 pm

My XXL kit arrived with a few missing parts - before I model them myself, does anyone happen to have STLs or models that would work as a temp solution to mount the two drag chains?

I'd suggest 3 2.5" angle brackets, something along the lines of:

put a strip of metal across the ones you place on the Y-axis motor mount plate.

Probably you could pretty easily fashion something out of 1/8" aluminum strips.

Here are the drag chain brackets I made for my SO3. I am not using the drag chain from C3D but from the Inventables website. Also, the controller is in a different location on the SO3 XXL.

Basically, here's what I got... Good luck. ;-)

EDIT: Copy-pasta from previous post: The drag chain I have is the 30331-01 from Inventables.com.
