Re: 3D Printed Electronics Bay Brackets

This design could be used in very large diameter av bays. Would save having to have extra wide sleds for no reason.

Some more information here.

Re: 3D Printed Electronics Bay Brackets

It may help to distribute the shock load a little at separation, but primarily to stop the sled from being able to rotate around a single rod. which your design wouldn't allow anyway.
