Parametric Cable Holder by iliis Jun 16, 2011

Description

For use in electronic labs to hang all the cable somewhere accesible. But they also work great at home to tidy up all your computer cables. The idea is to print multiple and attach them next to each other to hang the cables in the gap between the hooks.

You can of course also use them as normal hooks to hang up other stuff ;)

Added hanger tag for the taghunt.

Very nice, I'll be printing out a few dozen of these. The cable "nest" hanging over my shop door has kept me from closing it for, well, years. Good chance to go through and toss stuff, too.

What are the odds of needing a Centronics parallel cable ever again?

Instructions

Print some of the size you want. The 15/7mm version is intented for thicker power cables, while the 10/5mm is better for smaller cables like usb cables. Also print one endstop for the end.

You can mount them directly to a wall, but I recommend to first mount them on a plank or something and bolt that to your wall.


Parameters:
hook_thickness: How wide the hook is, eg. 15 or 10mm. The larger the plugs the higher you probably want this.
spacing_thickness: How wide the gap gets, eg. 7 or 5mm. Change that to best fit your cables.
extend: The length of the hook, how much it sticks out of the wall.
The rest should be fairly self explanatory.
