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 :-)

Made mine just a bit larger (+25% maybe) fits the longer and fatter USB cables quite nicely that way. Thanks!

Very useful! I've printed a couple dozen now!

just printed out a set .. awesome & they fit nice and snug :)
used a 0.5 nozzle on my Prusa i3

I'm glad to hear that. Thanks for the feedback.

I'm about to make these, Do you have the file for the end with the USB Connection you see in the photo?
