M2 Motor Mount: Better-looking Cable Cap

An objection was raised to my original cable strain relief technique with the PETG motor mount:

M2 Motor Mount - PETG installed - cable brace

M2 Motor Mount – PETG installed – cable brace

The proffered replacement had a difficult-to-print orientation:

M2 Motor Mount - Cable Cap - original STL orientation

M2 Motor Mount – Cable Cap – original STL orientation

Which Meshlab’s Manipulators Tool rotated by 90°:

M2 Motor Mount - Cable Cap

M2 Motor Mount – Cable Cap

And that printed without any drama (or support), at least after I sliced it to use a single perimeter thread that could cope with the arch:

M2 Motor Mount - Cable Cap - on platform

M2 Motor Mount – Cable Cap – on platform

Then a few pretty cable ties wrapped everything up in a decorative package:

M2 Motor Mount - Cable Cap - installed

M2 Motor Mount – Cable Cap – installed

And that’s that…

Memo to Self: Bang on the ␛ key to get out of whatever mode the Manipulators Tool gets wedged into.
