Just got my x-carve pro and doing the build as I write this. A little disappointed to see that none of my cables are braided. All the demos and the included instructions show braided cables. I have read they are superior for not kinking and especially useful for a CNC that is constantly on the move. Has anyone gotten braided cables or did Inventables change this before shipping? Photo below from instructional videos.
Mine look just like the image you attached.
Thanks for writing zack, my do not look like this. They are rubber…
Hey @CurtSchulz so the rubber cables are the ones that were the final design, those braided cables were on some earlier units that we had when those instructions were recorded.
Mine are rubber. Working fine, seems everything that moves is captured inside the drag chain.
