Apple Hard Disk SC replica

Hi,
I'm trying to build an exact replica of the Apple Hard Disk SC in Fusion 360, in order to 3D print it and put in one or two of my own versions of the blue SCSI to sd PCB. The only problem is, that I don't have the exact dimensions, that's why I am opening this thread. Maybe somebody has the same case and can provide them.

Thank's in advance.

I believe these drives were zero foot print meaning their length and width matched that of the Mac Plus base. Not sure if that’s helpful to you or not.

Yeah, the one printed in the Macintosh SE user guide fits perfectly under the Mac. But there are some engraved lines into the case like the one on the front, for which I can't find any dimensions.
I believe @PotatoFi (I think it was) was working on a similar project, so might have some measurements?
Thanks for the tipp, I will ask PotatoFi later on.

I think this isn’t quite right. I no longer have mine but am quite certain the HD xx-SCs were the same width as a classic Mac, but about 1” deeper, which I always found a bit bothersome.

This is in contrast to the original HD-20, which indeed was a true zero footprint except for the one bulgey bit in the right rear.

Thanks for bringing this up. I just measured the depth of my Macintosh SE, and it's about 9.5 inches (24.13cm). Yet according to the original Apple Datasheet, the depth of the HD xx-SC series is 10.5 inches (26.6cm).
