Thanks, I'll try that. As I beleive that the .stl is fine.

You might try rotating the print on the build platform to see if the problem is with the .stl file or the printout.

thanks for the info. tried that one as well. On that one the right one fits perfectly, but the left side is just too tight.
My fan is mounted on the front left corner with a similar design to this: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... so that's how I got the idea that maybe the left side is colling a little quicker then the other, making the hoe just a bit too tight. maybea customisable Thing might help?

Instructions

Print, put the buds in the pockets, wrap the cable, clip the jack, admire.

50% fill and zero extra shells works fine.

If your earbuds are too tight a fit, use loose_earbud_holder.stl

Update: I've posted an improved design (easier to wrap & unwrap, stores cable more compactly, fits all earbuds) at thingiverse.com/thing:21858.

Does this one work with the new apple earbuds? or is there a modified version?

Fantastic design - my picture shows three of these things - one with standard Apple Earbuds, one with the Apple Earbuds which came with my iPhone carrying the buttons which some people seem to have had problems with (I haven't!) and the third ... just looking like Squidward. One point - the left hand side earbud hole for some reason comes out too small on my machine (RepRap Pro Huxley) - maybe oval. Is there any chance of increasing the hole diameter a touch - maybe 0.2mm or so, just to eliminate this sort of problem which is probably due to machine variations and tolerances?

Have you sorted out the problem with the left side? I seem to have the same problem. The right one fits perfectly, but the left one doesn't. Could it be the fan?

It took a while, but I've uploaded a file "loose earbud holder.stl" with holes that are .4mm larger. A bit loose is better than too tight.

i would love to see a wrapper like this updated for those earbud cables with mic and buttons

i never seen ones without those buttons.. but maybe its a europe thing

HPaul on Nov 29, 2011 said:

Unfortunately I don't have a set of earbuds which include the mic and buttons.

Anyone with one of them care to run up a derivative?

This is the best design i've ever seen for this. Simple and functionnal: great work.

yzorg on Nov 20, 2011 said:

i made one.. working good but. since i have those earbuds with volumebuttons and mic halfway on the cable it wont wrap clean around it.

robokid on Nov 18, 2011 said:

This is actually the best earbud holder that Ive seen on thingiverse, I like the compact/simplistic design.

Does anyone else think it looks like Squid-ward?

That it looks like Squid-ward is undeniable. ;)
