What keeps the cable from breaking?

I'm looking at the assembly manuals and all the wires coming from the print head.

I'm thinking that the print head moves around and the wires get bent and unbent to allow the head to move. Won't that eventually break one or more of the wires?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I'm asking about the insides of the cable bundle. I asking if the wires inside will break from all that flexing during print jobs. Please answer THAT question.

The cable guide and spiral wrap is there to prevent the wires getting damaged !

Hi Robert,

the wires have an elastic core, therefore they won't break easily, also for MK2S we've improved the design, so the creation of a hinge behind the Extruder is avoided. You just need to follow the instructions carefully.
