Extruder Ribbon Cable Replacement

Postby Xao » 18 Sep 2014, 23:06

Hey everyone,

I almost got done putting together the RigidBot kit and we found we were missing the Extruder Ribbon Cable. It looks like they put in the LCD ribbon cable in my order instead (we did not get the LCD upgrade).

I put in a ticket, but it sounds like they are so busy with the international stuff that they can't get to them so I thought I would try my luck here.

I saw this in the wiki: http://rigidtalk.com/wiki/index.php?tit ... bon_Cables

But I don't trust myself to make a new cable and if I could just buy one, it would be wonderful. I saw the one prebuilt one on the wiki, but it looked overly expensive as the wiki said.

My question is: is there a cheaper option that you know of? Is there a big difference between these ribbon cables? I don't know anything about this stuff. Like if these were long enough would they work: http://www.amazon.com/2-54mm-Pitch-Fema ... B00DN6H3X0

Is my only option to make one long enough? It looks like the ribbon part should be at least 40 inches (101 cm) to fit in teh cable management.

Thank you for your help!

Nevermind! The rumors were wrong. I put in a trouble ticket at the same time I made this post and they already got back to me! They were extremely prompt and helpful. Just awaiting my replacement part.
