Faceplate for Seagate Drives with LED Lens (Half Height)


Recommended Posts

I recently had to do some work on my HFDC, in a Geneve setup, and wanted to finally put a finishing faceplate on my Seagate 251 and 225 drives. I could only find a single half height face plate. It was here on AtariAge from Shift838 but I could not find the STL files. So, I created my own starting from a full height faceplate on Printables (see the text file in the attached zip for the original base design). I also created a LED lens that will fit in the faceplate insert. The lens inserts from the front towards the back. To remove press out from the back towards the front. The lens is very tight, so I recommend partially inserting it and then using a flat table surface with the faceplate facing down while pressing the lens in. 

The files are attached below and here are some pictures. I used a translucent filament and the green LED mounted in the drive shows through very bright.


Let me know if you have any suggestions and I hope others find this useful. Happy TIing everyone!
