I started a video series in which I modify an Ender 3 pro in an unusual way. To be able to make it fold, you need to modify the cables. I’ve made a custom connector for the bed connection so the strain relief is improved.
I’ve made a video in which you can see how I came up with the idea and how I added it to the printer:

Print Settings

Printer: Creality Ender 3 pro
Rafts: No
Supports: No
Resolution: 0.2
Infill: 30%
Filament: ABS, Nylon


I have used PLA with carbon fiber to experiment with. I wouldn’t recommend this due to its brittleness and low temperature resistance. I would recommend printing the parts with ABS, PETG or Nylon except for the bed connector. This must be printed out of ABS, Nylon or another temperature resistant material.

  • Extra cable to lengthen all cables by approximately 1m (please check this before lengthening everything)

The position of the holes can be found in the PDF document which can be found in the downloadable zip.

It is an experimental mod so it’s possible that things don’t work well over time and things can change. Keep this in mind and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
