3D model description

This is a part I designed in order to shorten my car's throttle cable to suit an aftermarket carburettor.

To use, simply pull the pedal end of the cable first through the large end slot, then over the round part and through the little end slot.
Check the length is correct and then slide a cable tie through the central hole and tighten it around the cable to lock in place.

This could be used for any number of cable-actuated mechanisms with a cable of diameter 2.0mm-3.0mm or scaled to suit.

3D printing settings

Wall thickness 1.2-1.6mm
Enable support with density 50% and 1 layer Z gap.
Infill 30-60% depending on material. I use octet for uniform strength.
Brim adhesion - 10 lines at a minimum as it is a small part.
