The structure of the optical drive is quite different from the others, because instead of the base will be mounted on a wall, more precisely on the wall behind the monitor, with the tray opening to the right.
The problem is: how to make a cool way to open the drive tray?
This is my idea to do it 😀 :
Drawing and cutting some pieces:
Then, as usual, I polished the edges:
an I drilled the holes:
then I temporarily mounted the pieces on the optical drive:
…in the last picture can you begin to guess something about the opening system that I had mentioned before? 😀
I finished the whole structure, I only have to mount it on the wall:
first, I needed a polycarbonate disk:
…this disk has to be mounted on the structure in this way:
One of the two supports is a pivot, and on the other the disc can move a few millimeters due to the oval hole that allows it to move back and forth.
Then, on the disk there is a bolt that presses the drive button when someone presses the disk 😀
Now it’s time to polish the edge of the disk.
