    cable management

    For those working on cable routing and attachment issues, I just ran down to Radio Shack and bought these - see pic. (P/N 278-1640) They have a sticky pad that securely mounts on a flat surface. The size of the clip is an ideal size for the main cables.

    Certainly a lot neater than my solution. However, for me there is the question of "Which came first? The chicken or the egg?" LOL
    I have to get the printer working before I can print the Cable Tie Holders.

    This is what I came up with. With the stuff in the kit, plus a couple extra zip ties.

    There is actually another option you guys can explore which is to route the cable along the edges of the frame. This way, It does not take some of the X-axis print area. However, you need to get creative on how to secure the cables so that it will not interfere with the X-Wing.
    Disclaimer: I have not tried this out. Having issues with Filament feeding at the moment.
