3D-printed Cable Parts @ DHC
3D-Printed Cable Parts
DHC is the first cable manufacturer to offer custom 3D-printed parts to add a unique accent to our cables. We do this as a personal passion & hobby, offering these parts at a price very close to what we pay for them, and each part is crafted to the customer's specifications and the dimensions of their cable. This allows the manufacture of splitters and other cable parts with physical features and customizability that would be impossible through any process but 3D printing.
Our preferred material is sterling silver, although pure gold (white, 18kt, or 14kt Rose) is also available. The world's leading 3D print service takes our custom models and prints them out of high-resolution wax, then uses the wax to create a traditional plaster investment-cast for the molten metal to be formed in. The finished product is hand tooled and polished for a jewelry-grade piece. Sterling silver is an enduring material that merely requires periodic polishing to stay bright & shiny, while solid gold parts are of course maintenance-free.
We offer these parts exclusively on Symbiote SP, Symbiote Fusion, Molecule Elite, and Silver Complement4. For Symbiote SP, we go a step further, offering a complete "All Silver Edition" with sterling silver y-splitter, IEM plug barrels, and amp plug barrel.
Below is our catalog of potential designs. Many can be adapted to a variety of our cables, while others are exclusive to a certain model line due to its size. After you pick a custom 3D-printed y-split as your y-split choice when purchasing a cable, we will consult with you to choose the perfect design.
Classic tube - a cylinder with holes on the front. Simple, tried-and true.
Helix split - a cylinder encircled by a triple helix shape. The top seller.
Tapered tube - a cylinder that becomes slimmer in the center, for an hourglass shape.
Micro-cage - a sequence of rings and pillars spirals around a small center split.
Teardrop - a graceful rounded shape with openings on the outer flat surfaces.
Honeycomb - a hexagonal pattern is stamped onto an octagonal splitter.
Carbon - our 3D take on carbon fiber, with a checkered imprint around the center of the split.
Monogram - we can write anything on the side of our classic tube split.
Stacked microcube - tiny 3D cube shapes tightly packed, form a fascinating pattern on the sides.
Separated microcube - the cubes stand alone, arrayed in a 3x10 pattern on each side of an octagonal splitter.
Micro atomic - three rings form a classic "atom" shape with spheres representing electrons, around an ultra-compact splitter.
True silver atom - the five atomic orbitals and all of the electrons of a real silver atom orbit around our Complement4 splitter with figure-8 holes.
Hypercube - our take on the impossible four-dimensional shape. The center is a cube-shaped cut-out, and hidden rectangular grooves route the 8 wires.
Nanotube - the shape of a carbon nanotube is embedded into the sides of our classic tube split.
Tesselation 7 - an M.C. Escher inspired bird motif is printed onto the sides of a seven-sided Complement4 splitter with figure-8 holes.
