Could you print cable combs for cables larger than 5mm in diameter?

Of course! The 5mm "limit" is just set as a reasonable maximum for the online customizer. If you need a wider diameter, download the scad-file and use OpenSCAD to enter your own values. You can go as wide as you want.

The only real "limitation" I can think of might be the clip on setting. Bigger cables means more plastic that could make the part less elastic/bendable making it harder to clip on the cables. You can tweak the clip on opening ratio in that case.

Holy jesus, thanks for this gem. Parametric too! <3

A little tricky to do 1 row, but should work

Updated the SCAD. Single row clip-on should now work as expected.
