MM2: Wire management – Part 1

MM2 Upgrade: Y axis cable carrier

As many I already know, I am a big fan of cable carriers. This is also a thing that has annoyed me so much with my current prusa, because I haven’t been able to find a good way to put any cable carriers onΒ it, but with this MendelMax2 build I am aiming in that direction … Read more
