CNC machine/robotic cable management

11 September, 2012 (08:35) | hardware

Since I’ve been building my mecha-shapeoko, I’ve been looking into parts that make the build really clean. If you recall the Happy Monkey snowboard CNC machine, it had some really nice cable management that kept the cabling clear of the machine during operation. With my machine going large scale, I wanted to get some. My initial searches turned up some horribly priced parts.

It turns out that the trick is to search for ‘Cable Drag Chain’ and you’ll find the inexpensive pricing that we’ve all come to know and love on ebay. I picked up some 40″ 10mm x 15mm for about $12.
