I really needed to clean up the rats-nest of wires that was behind my desk, I had no Zip Ties at home, so i attempted to 3D-Print some that i found on the internet, but i didn't find those to work that well, so i designed these!
-Turns out that simply designing a tool for the job, doesn't do the job, behind my pc its still a rats-nest....
It takes only 2 minutes to print a single Zip Tie!
Please see the video on how to use these:
I recommend to use PLA for the "locking" mechanism, and TPU for the "wire". (all PLA will also work).
Need something a bit more flexible? Check out the Elastic Tie! :https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/home/elastic-ties-optimized-for-3d-printing
I would like to enter this design in the
, since one of my new years resolution was to clean up a lot of the cable mess that is in my apartment, and keep it that way. (especially behind my PC)
Feel free to leave any questions or comments!
