I’ve always had issues trying to print multiple items on my Ender 3 Pro, I’d fill up the bed with multiple parts and inevitably one would fail and then break off and ruin other parts.
I decided to upgrade my print bed to a metal one in the hopes prints would adhere by creating a super flat surface since 3D printing is about one layer printed after another. Plus – after print is done – I could flex the metal sheet and the print would pop off.
So after installing the flex metal bed – I noticed the cables in the back kinda rubbed – which is a no-no because it could potential fray the cable on the metal edge.
I found a chain cable guard model online but it requires:
- 28 larger chain links
- 19 smaller chain links
- 1 motor case
- 2 add’l rail clips (anchors)
So now was my venture into testing if I could fill the print bed with all of these multiple models.
48 models (1st large batch) – 19hrs 17ms later – it printed with only 4 failures which I tried to salvage with blue painters tape. It didn’t work (they warped) so I printed the extra ones.
Assembly was fun and they look cool!
Thanks for letting me share.
