you can either purchase double sided tape from any hardware stores or insert 2 quarters on the bottom to make it heavier. (CableHolder_with_coin_FIX.STL)

CableHolder_FIX file is the normal design which has been fixed, just print it out and tape it to the table. (No support is needed)
CableHolder_with_coin_FIX file has a coin hole underneath for inserting coins so it can become heavy. (Support is needed)

This design was made using SolidWorks

Even for the thickest cable I have (laptop charger) the opening on the top is too large to actually retain it. I would say start out be resizing to 90% for larger cables and 75% for plain old phone charger cables.

Advice to set infill minimum 20%! I made 10% and top of this thing was not good.

can you please share a costing of single cable holder if we make it at home by self????

The cable holder weights around 10 grams, I buy 1kg of filament for $20.

$20 = 2000 cents

10 x 2000 = 20000
20000 / 1000 = 20¢

Therefore It should cost around 20 cents per cable holder!

One thing that has to be considered is cost of electricity. so you add 4 cents depending on your printer...

Lol, old design... I actually buy these from the bargain store, they are soft silicone, come with 3M sticky backings already, and they come in a pack of 8 for $2.. in 4 different colours..

Soon to be leaving thingiverse because of Makerbot's behavior towards open source.

This model has some issues with it. It's not extremely obvious why the bottom has an inset circle? (Are you supposed to glue in magnets or something?) And, there seems to be a square inclusion on both sides. You can see it when it prints, and it's inefficient.

Thank you for your comment!
I knew about the problem but never got a chance to fix it.
Ive uploaded 2 new files (CableHolder_with_coin_FIX, CableHolder_FIX), in those new files I removed the 2 square holes on the sides you were talking about it.
For file CableHolder_FIX, I removed the coin hole however file CableHolder_with_coin_FIX, still got the hole under it (Its used for inserting coins to make it heavier)

Bardiaesm, what universe are you from not to realize that it is unethical to use someone else's picture or to steal someone else's design? Just because you say who you stole it from doesn't make it right.

Come on !!!!!!
Getting ideas and getting inspired by other designs, redesigning an idea with new initiatives and citing the source of the idea is Not called Stealing, Sir.

For example do you believe that apple compony or any other mobile companies invited mobiles?

Well I agree with the point that sharing a design or modifying it for thingiverse is OK as long as it is a simple design like this. Anybody could open his cad software make a half sphere and punch a circular hole in it, but when it comes to more advanced stuff where the designers actually did put their sweat and tears into, we should not steal.

But I guess as the market for 3d designs will soon grow very fast there will be significant changes to how copyright is handeled. Let's just be happy that for now nobody is suing us

What is up with Thingiverse lately? I think all the staff must be on break or something

Thankfully, this website isn't like schools that in the weekends are closed.
My design is completely designed by my own with SolidWorks and it has been featured since 11AM today (In the weekend)

Hi man this is my version of the design: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:40366http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
I think you shouldnt use the foto of the original photograph.. Its worse enough to steal the design, then we shouldnt also steal the pictures professional fotographs made for their magazines. Also why dont you print it and upload a picture? Or maybe do a 3d render, thats what I like to do.

Thank you for your comment, Firstly, Im so sorry and I do not why that your design was not featured and the difference between my design and the original design is that I made a coin-size-hole on the bottom of the design to inset 2 coins for making the design more heavier (Please read the description)

Secondly, I also did note in my description that the picture is from http://www.bluelounge.com/products/cabledrop/www.bluelounge.com/products/ca...

Thirdly, there is not any principle that we can not use the original picture that inspired us and helped us to get the design.

Ok sorry didn't see that link when I made the comment, or maybe it wasn't there yet at the time.

Really shame that thingiverse has not featured your thing and now has featured this. Definitely they was fooled by the picture!

They have their own principles for featuring a design and I think they know their rules better than us

I agree 100%.
