A3X rewired with flatcable
« on: December 09, 2017, 03:50:05 AM »
Hi,

Got the A3X elekslaser ... Always got problems with the short wires used by the designer.
Resulting in bad laserjobs, and unwanted axis stops.
Tried to redesign the whole wiring setup by using flatcable and suitable connectors.
Even attached the Z-axis for this design.
See pics for current looks

Laser is working very stable right now!!

nice work.

I used cat5 and drag chains, need some graphite to lube the drag chain.
