Custom Inovativ Cart Accessories – OWC Thunderbolt 2 & 3 Hub Bracket

3D Printing Inovativ Cart Stanchion Tube Cable Clips

I have recently launched a new online shop for custom 3D Printed bits for the inovativ carts. It’s been almost 3 years since buying the cart and it has been one of my favourite pieces of equipment – it comes with all Digital Capture Packages that are available for hire. There have been a few things I have struggled with – such as keeping the cables tidy and safely mounting my favourite OWC Thunderbolt hub. For about a year I have resorted on sticking it onto the side of the cart with velcro – but found it a bit scary at times (velcro is either not strong enough, or so strong that you almost break the hub trying to pull it off).

This is when I decided to invest in a 3D Printer and learn CAD. A few months later (after a massive pile of failed prints) I came up with my first project – a bracket to safely mount an OWC Thunderbolt 2 hub onto the inovativ cart. The bracket is printed from a plant-based plastic that’s biodegradable and very tough.

The bracket clips onto the top shelf (so it doesn’t fall off on bumpy surfaces etc) and the hub slides in – with access to cables from underneath (and the side for TB2 version).
