I was tired of having my backup hard drive sitting on my desk. So I designed this cradle that connects to the metal stand of my (2006) iMac and holds the hard drive behind the screen. I decided that making it look like a mustachioed man with glasses was the perfect look for my hard drive. He's just a know it all with a perfect memory.
The thing is split into three parts so it can be made without support material.
- Print out the .stl
- remove the designed in support braces under the glasses (the thin fan like sections)
- glue the three parts together.
I don't know the relative sizes of the metal stands of other iMacs models so I don't know if this works on anything besides mine (white plastic 2006). If someone wants to print it and let me know, I'd love to find out.
