HDD Rail for Medion/Digitainer HTPC case / Schiene 3.5 inch
by Schorhr, published
from Pollin. It's a surprisingly well made case with screw-less drive mount... IF you have the parts, which are not included for a 3.5" Harddrive.
After considering mounting the drive under the DVD burner, but beeing unhappy with the 5.25" to 3.5" adapters I could find, I started one myself. I tried to keep it minimalistic (cheap&fast), but I did not finish it (See SketchUP file: Test_HDD_5-25_3-5_Adapter3.skp).
Instead I decided to create slides for the intended harddrive bay, and after finding some similar one at Google Warehouse that did not work out, I started from sketch.
I somewhat cleaned them up and made them a single manifold object, plus changed it so they can be printed without support material from one side.

Yes, it makes it very hard with the use of the decimal point (.) versus the comma when working with small numbers as 1,001 means one thousand andÂ one but it also means 1 and 1 thousandths which is so confusing and add spaces into it it just looks so odd.
I read Wiki about the use of . and , but it still makes the use of , so confusing.Â Even in Solidworks if I enter , ir converts it to . when I am in the ISO or ANSI mode.

The initial version's fit was VERRRRY tight, I included a (untested) SLIM version (about 0,4mm thinner).
Also note that the plastic rail is not reaching to the bottom of the drive, what some may prefer instead of sliding the drive on the bay directly. You will need to increase the part height (upper printing side) half a millimeter or so.
PS: See screenshot for best printing orientation on small beds.
PPS: Don't wear as earring.
