⬢Use two zip ties and push them through the upper slots on the cable-holder.
⬢ATTENTION! Before tightening the zip ties add the cables from the hotend. Use the channel in the printed part to arrange them properly.
⬢Once the hotend cables are included, tighten the zip ties and cut remaining parts.
⬢Open the textile sleeve and insert the cables from the hotend.
⬢Compare the look of the cable management with the last picture.
The zip tie arrangement was tested with the injection molded double spool holder (provided in the kit and assembled later on). If you intend to use any other frame mounted type holder, make sure the zip ties won't crash into it, which might result in a print failure.
⬢Great job! You've just changed the hotend in the extruder.
⬢Heat up the printer and try it out ;)
Changing or manipulating the hotend will change the height of the layer. It is necessary to re-calibrate the first layer. Follow this article: First Layer Calibration (i3).
