This can join the two ends of an ethernet cable so you can coil it up, and keep the ends together and protect the clips a bit, especially when stored with piles of other cables.


There is a slight overhang on the top but it seems to print OK anyway.

This model is more or less parametric.

If the plug is too snug, increase slide; or decrease it if it is too loose.

This part was originally authored in OpenSCAD in mm.
I just tested it in OpenSCAD 2013.2.28 (latest ubuntu), and it is fine.

Perhaps your viewport settings and units are scrambled.

I was completely ignorant of openscad at the time. I thought it was an editor where you opened it and saw the part, like Blender or the like. Now I know the secret. Hit F5! Heh.
