Do you want your Afinibot Prusa i3 to look professional? Dave Desrosiers found an amazing solution and wants to share it with the Electronicgeek’s community.
Dave explains how he did it:
“I replaced the M3x30 bolt with M3x50, the bolt are a bit long when completed they interfere with the top cover, i would recommend cutting them to 45 mm, i have 9mm of tread left after everything are all tighten.
Install the Cable mgmt against the acrylic, secure with nuts, i also used small washer. insert the provided white melzi spacers, then secure with nuts.
I have attached a diagram to explain how to run the wires, i found doing the wires from the top first easier, you might have to replace the tie-wrap when you do the bottom wires, got a bunch of small tie-wrap from the Dollorama for $3.
Once all cables are in place used the Melzi case bottom and the Melzi board and secure to the back two bolts, then you can start wiring the board, pull the cable over the green connector and cut about 10mm pass the connector, this should give you enough slack to strip the wire and do the connections, and when all completed it should just touch the x axis support frame.
for the 14 AWG wire i did not tie-wrap them on the cable mgmt, they were a bit short and are stiff to bend.
p.s. the melzi case i got from the web,thingiverse, the top need to be trim in the inside one of the top support is in the way of the ruban cable connector.”
