This carriage replaces the original aluminium carriage for 3.5" disks that come with a MacPro. Due to some unfortunate design decisions the original carriages can't be used with 2.5" disks. This carriage fits in the slides of the MacPro case and supports the locking mechanism.


When printing make sure that you reduce warp as much as possible, any warp will tighten the fit into the MacPros slides. Also check that the parts with minimum Thickness will not be printed with over 1.75mm thickness, otherwise it won't fit. Make sure to adjust first layer thickness accordingly.

Great idea !
I advised and helped a friend to install SSD in his MacPro, I didn't know the HDD were directly plunged on the mainboard and the connectors had to be perfectly aligned.
I had planed to use a standard 3"1/2 to 2"/12 adapter, but it center the SSD and the SATA connectors would not have been aligned.
Thankfully, you made your how rack and you save my day...

OMG I was looking everywhere here in Moscow, Russia. No place had it for sale and i need it urgently!
