This project brings industrial-quality production to your kitchen table! In the industry, they call it desktop manufacturing.
At Sugru, we developed this unique rocking compression mould for the single most popular cable in the universe: the Apple Lightning to USB Cable. Now you too can experiment with this exciting technology.
Whether it’s just for kicks or to start a bustling cable repair business, professional moulding is easier than you think.
All you need to create industrial-quality strain relief for your cable is a 3D printed mould, a pack of Sugru, a paintbrush and some dish soap (washing up liquid).

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
