Made first mod to the Replicator 2.

It has a stiff plastic tube that acts as a guide for the filament this was popping loose because it was too tight against the control cable.

So I removed the small zip-tie that held the electronics cable to the middle of the machine and reused one of the wide zip-ties from the shipping packing and put it around both the filament tube and the electronics cable. Then used a little blow torch to remove some of the sharp edges on the big zip-tie.
