Introduction: Round Up Charge Cord Holder
YEE HAW! Round those cords up. Isn’t it annoying when you go to charge any of your electrical devices and find that they are all tangled? Or that you have to reach down and grab your cord from the ground? Problem solved with this simple charger cord holder! This holder will allow you to keep your cords organized and conveniently at hand or off to the side for later use. Not only is this holder convenient, but it is also aesthetically pleasing, blending into any environment in which it is placed whether it be hanging on the side of your desk or sitting on your table. Make your life a little easier with this simple charger cord holder!
1. Fusion 360
3. 3D printer
4. Friendly adhesive
Step 1: Design
I used the design above for my inspiration. I loved that design,especially that you could put other cords off to the side, but wanted a smaller and more creative look for my design. I decided to use circles and sketched my design as shown above.
Step 2: Fusion 360 Part 1
1. I recreated my sketch without the cut outs for the cords in Fusion 360. I started with a circle and then used the offset tool to create a bigger circle. Next I copy and pasted that circle and used to the tangent constraint, so that the two circles were touching. Then I repeated this step 2 more times until the circles were arranged in a square. Then I used the trimming tool and cut away the excess in the middle. Finally I used arches on the outsides to make the connections between the cirlces bigger and smoother and fixed them by making them tangent to the circles.
Step 3: Fusion 360 Part 2
2. Then I extruded the sketch.
Step 4: Fusion 360 Part 3
3. For the cut outs I started by making a tangent plane on the ouside of the circle. Then I created a sketch in which I made a circle with a diameter 2mm larger then the diameter of my cord and placed it on the extruded part so that the cord of the circle was the exact diameter of the cord. Next I extruded the the sketch and repeated this step 3 more times(or use mirroring). Lastly I filleted all of the edges using the fillet tool( 0.25).
Step 5: 3D Printing
To print this design use 10% infill with no support. I have attatched the STL file for easy printing. Aslo note that this is a very quick print.
Step 6: Step 5: Finishing Touches
Use any adhesive you would like to attatch your creation to wherever you want it.
Step 7: Conclusion
Overall, this is a great and easy project! I really enjoyed creating it and now I have a simple way to keep my cords organized and acessible.
