Braided Sleeve

Mon Feb 19, 2018 9:10 pm

Does anybody know which Braided Sleeve is used from Prusa and where to buy it.
I wanna rebuild my printer with the updated parts and I also want to use the new sleeves because I already had a broken cable on the heatbed caused by the Nylon filament pushing against the cables.

Daniel, you'll find several comments on this topic by searching for "braided cable sleeve" you'll see the posts. Joan.T shows some good information and a picture half way down the page.

Yes I searched for that topic but did not found the right answer what I search for.

But Joan.T used his own sleeves not the original ones and I am interesting in getting very similar to the Prusa ones as I have read that they are harder then normal ones.

Sorry that I created a new topic - I could have used the other one which would make answers better for all of us.

Hi All,

Got my MK3 up and printing. I did a few upgrades on the way. One of which was the replacement of the plastic spiral wire covers. My kit included the newer formed woven heater bead wire covering. I also used my own braided sleeves for the stepper motor, the hot end and thermistor and all other wires in their own separate bundle. I used a smaller 1/4" sleeve for the hot end and thermistor and the stepper motor bundles (had to remove the hot end wire terminator connector) and 1/2" for the larger wire bundle. Looks great.
