Summary

Parametric 3/4 Height 3.5inch to Full Height Hard Drive Adaptor.

Full height 3.5 inch drives are becoming increasingly difficult to source, and some slot in drive bays (e.g. Drobo) can allow a wobble which can put strain on the drive connector over time, when a 3/4 height drive is used. This makes the Drobo or drive prone to serious damage.

This solves that problem, with an adaptor that fits on top to make the drive full height.

If there's not enough space around the drive for cooling, you may have to create holes in this design for cooling.

Instructions

Print on a Replicator. Use Sugru to attach to the hard drive in the 4 corners as shown in the pictures.
