Left side extruder cable clip hits x motor mount before reaching home position
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I noticed on quiver 13 the cables were hitting the motor mount before the bearing holder hit the bumper, I was able to adjust this by pushing the cables out of the way, but I'm not sure this will be repeatable on the line.

I think we could route the cables behind the motor instead of to the side

I think it is possible to rotate the clamp to hold the wire on the back of the motor with changes made in T4866

The cable clamp has been removed in this branch and a directory for cable channel added. Also cable channel added to bom and cable clamp removed. If this gets approved a pn will need to be generated and the bom updated

This ticket and T4922 need to be reviewed by @Steven @kent and myslef since there are conflicting cable drawings

Quiver 7 appears to be hitting the x cable chain before the bump stop with this part installed

@EricNugent i added a pocket where the chain would run into the channel in rTAZQUIVER49dd4507ee0e

@EricNugent @MikeR can you please confirm if the changes on this ticket were good on the MER machines they were installed on?

@Steven I have not had any issues with the cables hitting the motor after I installed the new cable covers.

@Steven I can confirm that the part no longer interferes with the cable chain with the bump stop and cable cover installed
