I don't think I'm going to get by with  a one cable docking solution for my 2018 MBP. Best I can see is 2 cable: eGPU + OWC Thunderbolt Dock w/ daisy chained TB3 SSD). What would be great however is a cable clip/holder with the correct spacing for the MBP ports. If not for sale maybe someone can pint me to a 3d print file?

Something simialr to this, but for newer MacBooks:

The problem is usb-c connectors have mildly different dimensions for the connector housing, with different housing lengths. this makes it hard to create a one-size-fits-all housing.

The best way is to use something like Sugru, just mould it around with the connectors plug in, let it harden, and you have yourself a cable housing.
