Proteus Cable Roller
Organizing your cables and removing those tangled messes
still a work in progress and has not been fully tested
Designed to be heavy duty enough to handle any cable you can fit on it. Expect long print times.

Nuts, Bolts, Bearings:
- 1x M8 Threaded Rod: (cut to size with hacksaw)
95mm for Open Center Design
170mm for Dual Strut Design
- M8 Nuts
- 2x M8 19x6 Bearing
- 1x M5 Bolt 40mm Length and M5 nut
(only for Base_BearingWheel_SingleStrut)
- 2x M5 10x4 Bearing
(only for LowerRoller_Core_WithBearing)
Glues: choose best option for you
- Plastic Adhesive: make sure the plastic type you use works with your adhesive, please use proper air filters/respirators
- CA Glue (Super Glue)
- Epoxy: please use proper air filters/respirators
- M6 holes are cut into both Base types for you to secure the Cable Roller to something. A center distance of 50mm is between both holes.
- Both Base types are 80mm x 180mm in size.
I suggest that you use the "THINWALLED" files first. Unless you are printing this for a really heavy duty industrial cable the THINWALLED wheel sizes should be more than enough.
No support needed! - designed to print on any printer without support.
See images for the two Base types for printing
Use stronger material: PETG, ABS, NYLON, Other. I personally use PETG for everything these days.
If you want less print time you can try the -THINWALL versions of the main parts. Just find the same file name with -THINWALL at the end. The thin walled WheelCore is needed for the thin walled WheelWalls.
Open Center Design
Base Roller: two options
Dual Strut Design
you can not use a handle for this design, it will hit the strut.
- 2X WheelWall_Bearing_ShortCore
this is the easiest and shortest print time design
Let me know in the comments below what you think and if you have any ideas for these designs. There is much more that I could add but have kept it fairly simple to see how everyone uses the Cable Roller.
If you're like me and find this to be extremely useful then please share it and print some for friends/family/coworkers. Our lives get better the more people start using 3D Printers for everyday objects.
