Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

Hi everyone, I'm glad to see that the caddy has 8+3 downloads already. I would not expect so many so quickly. I would definitely appreciate a feedback from those who tried to print it so that I would learn how it came out from different printers. Pictures of your prints are welcome! You can notice i...

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

A cage printed from ABS... Don't forget: ABS juice or glue needed to prevent warping! :) Dodoid, HurricaneJames: I'm curious about the results of your printing. Regarding the "project" - Unfortunately, I don't have much free time* to participate in such things more seriously - I usually do...

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

See attached for the source files. There is a README file with all instruction so please read it before printing. Please note that this model is provided "as-is" with no guarantee, explicit or implied, that it would work as intended and would not cause damage or harm. Use it at your own ri...

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

The second prototype works well. It took 13 hours and 51 minutes to print the model (113 grams of the material were used) on Prusa i3 MK2.

I will send all source files tomorrow so anyone can print this hdd caddy at home.

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

kubatyszko: I cannot imagine true SGI workstation without a crappy plastic case.

In fact, I would like to print the optical drive front plate which is missing on two of my O2 workstations. Unfortunately, there is no ABS/PLA filament with this dark blue color.

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

uunix: I would recommend the current generation of Prusa i3 printers. It's still more a hobby thing and I see many aspects that could be improved (software, produced noise, default slicer configuration), however the print quality is comparable with much more expensive printers. I've bought it as a k...

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

(After sixteen hours of printing) The first prototype is done... and... it doesn't work very well :)

It was necessary to tweak it with a knife. Now it is possible to insert it in the computer but it is hard to pull it out.

The next version might be ok.

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

It's still a long way to go. After four hours of printing, it looks like it will take at least another six.

Unfortunately, the first prototype is usually not the one that works. There is a high chance that I will have to remeasure everything, modify the model and print it again.

Re: SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

The first version is ready to print. I don't think that it will fit well in the computer - minor modifications will probably be needed.

I will share the STL file of the final model.

SGI O2 HDD caddy (STL file needed for 3D printing)

Hi everyone, does anybody have an STL file of SGI O2 HDD caddy? (for 3D printers) I have a few O2 workstations that are without hard drives. It's not a problem to obtain a SCSI drive but the HDD caddy was unique for this computer. If nobody has it, I will make one by myself. I just want to be sure b...

Re: SGI Octane: IRIX always outputs to serial terminal

Ok, solved. I just had to replace empty* /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers with /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xservers.N.

*) Probably caused by initial installation of 6.5.5 -> adding inst patch -> 6.5.22 (I was not able to start directly with 6.5.22 when installed over network... not sure where was the problem).

Re: SGI Octane: IRIX always outputs to serial terminal

dexter1: I was followed your last advice and installed a new system of a clean HDD (the old installation was already corrupted). I've installed in using serial terminal just to have more convenient environment with prepared paths for all files. IRIX now outputs all boot messages to the local screen ...

Re: SGI Octane: IRIX always outputs to serial terminal

So the result is that I didn't find a way to get the graphics board working. I've installed 6.5.22 including drivers on overlay CDs but there is no driver for vPro. I've searched on the Internet and found that there are somewhere patches 4103 and 4104 which contain the driver. Unfortunately google c...

Re: SGI Octane: IRIX always outputs to serial terminal

I've checked /usr/gfx and it looks like there are drivers only for MGRAS and not ODYSSEY.

So I need to install correct drivers. I will try to install 6.5.22 app and overlay CDs . They should contain the driver as it was not a part of original IRIX 6.5.
