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.

  1. Print out the .stl
  2. remove the designed in support braces under the glasses (the thin fan like sections)
  3. 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.
