Basically a clip designed to grip the edge of your desk and have cable (USB, laptop power, network, etc, etc) threaded through them, so that cables don't vanish off the edge and behind your desk the minute you unplug them.


Again, I don't have a bot yet so this model is untested:

The model was scaled to my desk which is 2.45mm thick. I don't know how much flex there is in ABS so I expect this model will need tweaking to grip the desk well without getting too tight and snapping.

The slot for the cable is 4mm (should be big enough for anything up to a CAT5 cable (maybe a bit snug...)

As per Cupcake notes I've made sure there is no overhang greater than 45 degrees.

Again comments/suggestions welcome.

Great idea! I am waiting for my Makerbot in shipment, but this will be one of the useful things I can use and will want to try. Thanks for the great idea and design.
