How to install the Floating LED Light

The photos below shown how to snake the USB wire on a Prusa MK3S. I used a white USB cable to make it easier to see.

There are other paths to snake the cable, you are free to experiment. If you do, just run the extruder up to the top position (210 mm) to make sure it doesn’t hit the frame.

First install the cable clip as shown with the USB cable running through it.

Run the USB cable down along-side the back of the extruder.

The three photos below show which screw to remove to be able to install the cable clip.

Then you use the 16 mm screw and one or two plastic washers as described below.,

Use one zip-tie to hold the cable as shown.

Here is a close-up view of the zip-tie.

Then use either clips or zip-ties to hold the USB cable along-side the wire bundle.

After installing the USB cable as shown above, I ran the extruder up to 210 mm (the top position) and you can see in the photos below how the cable did not interfere at all.

Full disclosure: I have personally bought and used almost everything I mention on my web site. I search for good deals on good products for myself and tell you where to find them. If you buy from Amazon I do get a small commission, but you get the same price you would anyway. Most of the other stores I mention pay me nothing, but if they are convenient or have a good deal, I tell you. 

Thanks for your support. I'm not getting rich doing this. When folks use the product links I can see they care. It is a fair amount of work keeping the site up. And of course you can email me anytime.
