I've been using this model for quite a while w/ a slight adjustment to one side for the sata ports, finally finished my full adjustment for OEM. Just wanted to say thank you for the original work, it's been a great help and saved a lot of money.

That's a pleasure and good luck with yours.

Made one, no picture though, sorry. Worked perfectly.

Thanks a lot Owen...this saved me about $8 and 2 days of waiting for UPS.

My pleasure danz

2 Hours maybe. Not sure I haven't printed it for a few years and I don't have a working printer at the moment.
You could load the STL into a slicer and see what time it estimates.

How long to print this?

Thanks for making this! A few usage notes: The user must tap the screws into the holes since you can't 3D print threads. The holes are a bit smaller than the screw so this is possible. But since hard drive screws are flat, not pointed, I started tapping with a philips screwdriver, then used brute force to push the screw into that. I did it with ABS, but this might be harder to do with PLA since it isn't as soft. I used the first and third holes for my mounting, but found the third hole was about one hole's width off. So I essentially tapped an entirely new hole at that point. It worked though.

Hi Moby
Thanks for your comments. As for tapping holes in PLA, I always make the holes smaller and just make the screw create it's own thread. It works no problem. If you feel a need you can heat the screw up first but I've never worried about doing that either.

Ive bee using the cardboard box from the hardrive because i was too lazy to buy one thank god i stumbled upon this and thank you for making it i kinda feel like a loser because i cant make it myself but then again i am new to all of this

No problems Oliver. If you want to start learning how to make models Google Sketchup is a good place to start because it's one of the easiers CAD programs to learn. Plus they have good tutorials and it's free.

I just bought one of these online for over $20

I went with this one because it's a single piece. Works great! Nicely done!

 Thanks Johnny

Hard Drive / SSD Brackets for 2.5, 3.5, 5.25 mounts simplified

Yeah I printed yours but I wanted a single holder that went into the bay on it's own independent of another hard drive being there or not. Thanks for the info anyway.
