3D printed drag chain

Not the prettiest of print jobs, but functional. Drag chains are used to hold flexible wires in situations that call for frequent linear motions. They protect the wires from fraying, and keep them from tangling with machine internals.

Nah. It'd just take a dissolvable support material and higher resolution. There are commercial 3d printers out there that can print ball bearing assemblies in one pass, fully assembled.
