Here’s a DIY laser cut cable carrier chain project by Martin Raynsford:

I’ve been looking at cheap laser cutters quite a bit recently. Most of them are missing air assist and red dot positioning, these features require wires to be run up to the laser head which means running cables around the moving parts. These drag chains can route cables safely through the machine and are usually made of plastic. Having a laser though everything looks like it can have a laser cut solution so I made my temporary ones from 2mm mdf.
