Today I'm happy to release a small project that I've been working on that's very helpful for home lab organization. The Parametric Cable Comb is a tool that allows you to create a cable comb for hanging/storing cables to your specifications. All you need is a 3D printer and some filament. Once you set the parameters in the Thingiverse Customizer tool (alternately you can download the .scad file from GitHub and use the OpenSCAD Customizer), you can then export a custom STL file that can than be processed using your normal 3D print workflow.

I first learned about these while working at Tektronix, and found them extremely useful. However, they don't seem to be common in hobby electronics, although I understand they are used more often in the musical world. This was my first attempt at making a parametric 3D model and my first serious attempt at learning OpenSCAD. If I may say so, it turned out better than I expected. I hope you also find it useful. As always, if you encounter any problems or have suggestions, please let me know.
