Hey all, I've been on a hunt for this part for the past several work days. For the life of me I can't recall what this is called in order to make a useful search. When I worked in the transportation industry, there were these flanged tubes that would be inserted in vehicle doorways to prevent wear on cables (now they might use springs). The flange had 2-3 holes used for attachment to B or C pillars. It basically serves as a grommet, but has a lose fit around whatever is being passed through it's center. These were probably polyethylene or polypropylene, something very inexpensive.
Flange ~1.5"-3" diameter Length ~2"-3" long Tube~ .5"-1" diameter
If someone can rattle my brain (or provide a source), I'd be most appreciative.

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
