Its a little thing that you can use to wrap your headphone wire around.

Your headphone wire slips into the tube then you can wrap the rest of the wire around the ends and clip the ear buds into the end.


Drop the STL into your 3D printer program. For some reason its really really tiny. You'll need to increase the size before printing. You'll also need to change the X - axis by 90 degrees to lay it flat on the print stage.

This a blatant copy of the Wishbhone made by www.wishbros.com. I made the model from scratch following the dimensions and images on their website. This was my first 3D modeling project. My purpose for copying the Wishbhone was for the learning and experience of making something in 3D.

Hope you enjoy!

Hi, I'm glad you cited the http://wishbros.comwishbros.com website and their project.

Also, looking at your model, I'd chamfer the edges where you finally clip in the headphones.  That is a stress concentration and the little feet will eventually break off.

I uploaded a new version with thicker walls on the ends as robots-dreams suggested. I also used ASCII STL setting when saving from SolidWorks. I read somewhere that it was better.

The reason it's "really really tiny" is metric conversion. It's exactly 25.4X too small.
