Wave Cable Holder - The smart cable organizer!
RonTocknell Hi @UrbanoRodriguez , That does make better sense. I do appreciate that 3D printing is not a cost-effective method of production. It is a highly cost-effective method of producing a prototype. Perhaps in time, as machines become faster and more efficient, the prices of 3D printed products may come down. It seems that the more complex the item, the more cost-effective 3D printing is as a method of production. 3D printing does permit designs that would be extremely difficult, if not impossible to produce by any other means. However, often, the very best designs are extremely simple. Keeping cables neatly coiled is not a huge problem and many people find various ways of doing this (I use clothes pegs to keep them coiled). But, ingeneral, people prefer to use things specifically designed for the purpose rather than improvise so there will always be a market for items like this. I found yours appealing because (a) it is a beautiful form and (b) because it is so simple. I do hope you have a patent on it. You may not wish to get into injection molding but licencing the patent to a company that already does that could be lucrative. You've put in the time to come up with an excellent design. I would think manufacturers would be interested.
RonTocknell I love the design and I appreciate that you want to see a return on the work and expense in creating it. But, at 24 Euros, it's extremely overpriced. Better to secure a patent and get them produced in China so you can sell them for around 5 Euros each. This is certainly the nicest and neatest solution to tidying up cables currently available but most people would prefer to settle for the solutions already available (of which, there are many). People tend to buy these things in multiples... one for each tangled cable. At that price, few could afford to lay out almost 100 Euros for FOUR cable holders, when elsatic bands will do the job.
