A printable harness to prevent your cables from falling into the abyss when they are not in use. Keep yourself organized and save the frustration.

The STL is optimized for USB peripherals the same size as the one that comes with a Makerbot. If you want to fit a different sized cable, scale accordingly.

  1. Scale part if needed
  2. Print
  3. Add a command strip or double sided adhesive strong enough to hold some weight (I used velcro)
  4. Attach to desk or flat surface
  5. Insert cable (if you made the correct size the cable should be forced in through the top, yet have enough space to move freely once inside)
  6. Enjoy!
