Hi.

 

This is not "quite" Atari-related, except that I needed this so I could run VMware on my Mac so I could run Altirra. So, yeah.

 

Anyway. I needed more diskspace on my Macbook Pro and wanted to do something cost-effective and yet semi-permanent.

 

So, I bought a 1TB SSD, an enclosure and a right-angle USB cable for around $150 total.

 

Then I designed this to go on the bottom of my laptop:

These are three 3-D printed pieces. The center one holds the drive, and then the one next to it routes the cable up to the USB port and the plain one is just a dummy to complete it across, so it acts like a riser to make typing easier and also allow air flow under the laptop.

 

Anyway, I knew there were a few Atari people on here that had 3-D printers, so, if you are interested, the files to create this are here:

If anyone makes one, I would love to see the picture.

 

(Note, I am not making anything off of this. I am not using Amazon Affiliate links in the Thiingiverse description, and there is no charge to use this for non-commercial use.)

 

We now return you to posts that are much more legitimately Atari-related!
