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.

Product engineers and tooling manufacturers have much to gain from 3D printing: By generating low-cost physical prototypes early in the design process, they can check form, fit and function, gauge customer response and compare design iterations without commitment. Download Now
