I need another printer up and running, to print the parts for Fenrir and other projects, and after upgrading this Ender 3 to direct drive, the extruder stepper motor didn’t have a long enough cable anymore. So I designed a case for relocating the Ender 3 mainboard to the back left to gain the reach I need.
Yeah, I could have just lengthened the cable, but thought this would be a fun little side project.
As you see I’ve also relocated the screen to the left side, to make sure the stock LCD cable is long enough, and I guess this could be handy for the lefties out there.
I’ll start the print today, and I’ll upload it for all my Patrons when I’ve confirmed everything works as intended. 🙂

Ps. I might expand on this project later with other parts for the Ender 3.
