Cable clip for 3mm diameter smartphone/gadget USB charge cable. Best to use with http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:50294

9/4/13 - Added a STL for a single clip.


If you're like me, you have a number of "essential" gadgets like iPhone, iPod, iPad, Kindle, Android tablets, etc. Each of them comes with its own USB charging cable which you throw into a box with its charger in hope of easy access.

You have tried your best to keep them organized by various methods but after a few cycle of chargings, you always end up with a box of rat nest full of tangled cables.

Here come the rescue, a 3mm cable clip suitable for organizing these cables. A single clip can be printed in about 6 minutes but this STL is a pack of twelve which takes me about an hour to print using a Replicator. Raft or support is not necessary. I use 30% infill and 3 shells which is probably overkill...

It is best to use two clips per cable but one would work just fine and using three will make it pretty :-)
