I think I final have worked out getting four drives to fit on the SDM. Currently, I have two 7MM SSD's stacked on the back location and two 9.5MM drives on the front. Unfortunately, I can not get two 9.5MM drives to fit in the back location:

It all fits in the HP MS G8:

I had to use 28GA sheet metal and very thin wafer head screws to get it to fit:

I have these out for quote now:

Unfortunately, it has been difficult to take this to production. Sheet metal parts would be very affordable, but I would have to order thousands and there is a setup fee for stamped parts.

I am researching 3D printers, but I am concerned about the strength of the filament they use.

Any luck?

 

Is this a flat bracket that needs no forming (aka no bends, just flat)?

Yes, flat with 4 holes, but it needs to be very thin.

Thin and small also means, shops want/need to make tooling to stamp them out. Tooling cost $$$$ and minimum orders of 2500-5000 pieces.
