@west It looks like there are a few changes to printed parts in this branch. Is this part of the chages required to add the diode?

@kent it is creating more space for the third ground lug and adding a spot for a strain relief

Ok for the EL-HR0146 drawing I think the polarity of the diode needs checked. Based on what i read in T3308 the white line side should be crimped with the ring terminal and it's the opposite direction on the the drawing.

The models look ok have we checked to see that they fit and work as expected?

I have tested the model and it seems to work. My major concern about the strain relief was the tvs diode since it is a solid core wire connecting to the bed. Ill check with @mjpelletier about the orientation of the diode and update the drawing

@kent just pushed the drawing with a callout

Ok I checked the drawing and it has the right orientation of the diode now afaict. We need to get these printed out and build out the harnesses and test them on the four test machines.

@west is there any additional hardware for this change? I am assuming there is a zip tie but do not want to over constrain the solid core wire.

Just the zip tie

@west after I got the new cable with the diode and the new printed part, at least on quiver 6 when you tighten the SST screw down all the way, the wires is loose. The wires can freely spin around the screw so they are not making a good full connection. I used the same hardware as before.

@MikeR is a external lock washer being used?

A new part has been made and is slicing queue works really well on my printer with the one I printed

kent added a comment.Jan 23 2019, 12:15 PM

I installed this and it worked well for me.

Reviewed the drawing and other changes and this looks good to move over. This is now merged into master.
