LED strips and cables issue

Recommended Posts

I solved the issue by glueing the cables to the front panel. For better access I removed the right side panel, then added some drops Pattex 100% and pushed the cables down with a clamp. This glue is great. It stays flexible and glues almost every material. Only downside is it takes 24 hours to cure.

I love pattex, but mind that at 80C it will start to loose adhesion, so over time, specially if you ever enclose the machine, you might find that falling again.

I would try a bit of sugru, totally elastic and can resist 180C, also it can be removed.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
