I know, I know, its on the wrong axis....for some reason? ...also IGNORE the three little rectangles waaaay off to the right of the actual rack.
Let me know if you make it, I'd be really interested
Working with a company I was asked to design a storage rack to hold at least 45 2.5" SSDs. These SSDs contained vital emergency backup images of the machines on the production floor.
I designed a total of 26 drawers which can hold 2 SSDs per drawer.
Total Capacity of Storage Rack is 52 SSDs. Specifically, Intel 530 Series 480GB SSDs.
It's approx. (26cm x 18cm x 18cm) (L x W x H) not including the handle on top.
The locking mechanism on the front locks all the SSD trays in place using a multiple bolting system. The key when turned would allow all SSDs to be unlocked at the same time. The lock design is very basic and I'm not sure if it would be usable or ideal so it's up to you whether or not you want to use that or some other method.
The doors at the front are clear acrylic plastic(plexiiglass) with a metal frame that can be locked with a padlock
This is supposed to be made of metal but I said I'd share it incase you guys wanted to tweak the shit out of it.
I haven't made it so it could go very wrong if you try to(especially the locking mechanism which is enclosed behind the front panel with the "lock" on it.
