Overhead extension cord pulley

Overhead extension cord pulley by destos Jul 1, 2013

Description

Built this pulley for the fab lab, as the extension cord drops weren't exactly where I wanted them…

It has 2 DOF so forces affecting on the main truss aren't great enough to snap the 3D printed parts.

Supports cables up to slightly larger than half and inch.

There is one large printable bearing print-_head.stl that would be best to print in another plastic to prevent wear between the parts.
( I may try to merge those two interfacing parts into one part with a ball bearing design, in the future. )

Agreed, could probably make some sort of latch that still retains some strength and prevents the cord from slipping out when moving it about.
this would be even better if you could insert and remove the cable without removing the pully
Nice design! Gonna print a couple of these to clean up my mess of cables. Thanks
