My macbook has a 512GB hard drive, but it wasn't big enough. The hard drives that are compatible with MacBooks are really expensive, plus, I'd end up with a 512 GB SSD, I coulcdn't use.
This is a series of three prints that, when placed end-to-end are the width of the Macbook Pro and can hold the SSD case I bought. It also acts as a riser to raise the laptop up for easier typing and better airflow.
I haven't been using htis long, but it seems to be working for me, however, please USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I am not responsible if the drive overheats, the cable fails or any other things that might go wrong.
Here is the Drive I bought:
Here is the enclosure:
Here is the USB Cable I bought:
Here is what I used to attach it to the Macbook (I used 4 on each piece, 2 on the mac and 2 on the part and then velcroed them together)
I printed these vertically on their ends with 50% support and 10% infill (to keep them as light as possible)
Center piece with the USB open end down, USB End with the angled channel at the top, dummy, can print any way you want, I printed it vertical, so all pieces would have the "grain" going to same way.
Remove supports. slide the drive into the center tray (without the USB cable attached.)
Plug the USB cable into the drive. Carefully bend the cable into the channel and then through the USB end channel.
Then attach the command strip velcro to those two pieces, plug the other end into your laptop and position so the cable is not too stressed and stick it to the laptop.
Then attach the dummy end to complete the width of the laptop.
