Ender 3 Modifications – Direct Drive Cable Management Plate!

[amazon template=wishlist&asin=B07CGMN3XF]
We purchased a number of Ender 3’s to refresh our 3D printing farms and we converted them to direct drive extruders for several reason (we used this kit which has worked very well: ) however it left an open hole in the gantry where the extruder use to be so we took advantage of this to design a simple but effective cable management system for the printer and wanted to share it with you guys!

Note: This mounts by either using two (2) or four (4) M3 bolts/Nuts which you can get here
