Tubing chain

Just like an ordinary cable chain, but round. Because it’s round it can hinge at different angles enabling more possibilities.

    My best description of this design would be “Elegant”. If like me you have limited space for placement of your 3D Printer (Ender-3 MAX in my case) you need to seriously consider using the Tubing Chain design as part of your cable management solution. Although Jon suggests partial supports and raft I was able to print most components without supports using only a brim; minimal post processing is needed. Using supports will get better results with little or no post processing beyond removing the support material. I used a .16 Cura Profile for both PLA and PETG prints. Given the tightness of the fits I would strongly recommend PETG for its added flexibility. I also was able to install the Tubing Chain with the bed wiring “in place”. I have also been able to successfully scale up the prints in Cura (different project).
    What the Tubing Chain design fixed for me: My big problem is that I only have 70mm of clearance from the rear of the Build Plate to a wall with the table at the Y-Axis rear limit of travel. Without constraining the Bed Heater Wiring it would occasionally get caught on the Y-Axis Stepper causing a crash. The constrained wiring now makes 4 changes of direction with two rotating points that allow it to “fold” and move “laterally” across the wall away from the Stepper. All this while still being able to “straighten” and fully extend allowing full travel of the table in the forward Y-Axis direction.
    And lastly it is just a very cool, sick looking, bendy, folding, rotating Tubing Chain. I sent Jon a short video of what it looks like in operation which you can find on his Twitter Feed.
