With the transition into the new V5 system, there was one thing I thought was missing that the V4 system had, a form of wire management. The v4 system had the cable retaining clip but with the addition of custom wire lengths this would be unnecessary to design and submit, so I came up with the idea of something that clips on to any length two hole c-channel with the proper spacing to allow an official v5 cord to be snugly fit against the c-channel. the purpose of this clip would be to help with wire management and get rid of the dreaded bird's nest of wires. For the software I used Fusion 360 version 2.0.5331. the steps I took in order to make the model were brainstorming, drawing on a piece of paper then translating the drawing on paper to the software. This project has showed me once again that waiting until the last minute to do something is not the best path to success and it also forced me to learn how to use constraints. I will use 3d modeling in my future when I design and 3d print models or if I go into an engineering field.
