Awesome - this would be a nice addition to the seatbelt release.
Not having used this kind of software is it easy to tweak the design: the size of the hole for the line - e.g. for thinner line, and the size of the ring (20id x 5 and 25 x 5 are likely the most common variants)? Btw what is the size of the D ring you designed for?
It's easy to tweak design but if you haven't used this type of CAD it may take a while to get your head around it. I just picked it up to play with, as something to do when the Covid lockdown started....So I'm no expert! For Info I'm using Fusion 360 which is currently free for personal use.
The D ring is one that's supplied by Infexion. Not sure of its formal size but I measured it to be this:
I can't see any reason why a round ring couldn't be used instead (eg 15id x 3).
If there are some specific changes that you, or others, want (and you don't want to have a go yourself) let me know. I should be able to make updated models, as long as I don't get inundated with requests.
As I previously said, I don't really want to get into the making/selling parts and all the hassle of when things go wrong or break. That's Infexion's job. I also suspect their printers produce more robust parts than my DIY machine.
Why not get in touch with Evan and see if he has plans to manufacture this type of thing.
