New wire shroud for V4 Dual

Post by zemlin » Thu Feb 09, 2017 4:37 am

I really liked the new wiring shroud on the RevE M2 with the exposed connectors - making fan and hot-end swaps quick and painless. When I went to the dual I missed those exposed connectors.

So I used the model for the single shroud as a starting point and made one for the dual.

I need to swap the extruder and heater connections on the left side and make a few other minor adjustments to the design before it can go public, but I installed Rev 1 tonight and it worked out pretty well.

Dude! Really digging the smooth, yet aggressive profile to accompany the added cable management convenience... Let me know once you perfect, I think I'm going to need to do this.

I haven't redesigned it yet - but it is working its way up the priority list. Hopefully not long now.

OK - finally got around to reworking this, and I'm real happy with the results.
I found models for the connectors on the Molex site - although they weren't dimensionally accurate - they were a good start.
I redesigned the connector retention features from scratch. You'll need to make sure you scaling is on-point because I only have .1mm clearance in the model.

There's a lot of support in this build but most of it comes off easy. I used Hatchbox ABS, the .35mm nozzle, and a .18mm layer - which builds on support pretty clean and breaks away easy.

There's not a lot of room to stuff extra wiring inside. I had to replace my harnesses a couple months back. I stripped off all the sleeving, tape, and ties. I then started at the top and dressed the wiring pretty - working my way down to the box. Then I tied and wrapped things up stuffing all the slack in the box at the bottom.

STL files. I removed the small counterbores for washers. They don't build well and are pretty pointless.
Assemble with #4-40 x 3/8" screws.
