People stopped making trays when they became readily available online:

But a clever person could take that photo of the tray and figure it all out.

Paying $24.00 for a “piece of plastic” sticks in the craw of some folks.
I balked a bit at the cost initially, I must admit.

When I got the package working I realized that it wasn’t just a “piece of plastic” at all.
I paid for some excellent engineering.

With what I know now, I wouldn’t waste my time trying to build a home-made tray.
Well, maybe if I was incarcerated with nothing else to do I might try it :bigsmile:

OK, up in post #3 there is a link.
If you open the link there is a picture of tray D.
Copy it.
We don’t know the scale of the pic, but we do know the dimensions of a CD or DVD.
Use those known dimensions to determine the scale and ultimately the correct dimensions of the tray.
Once you determine size, you may (resolution) be able to enlarge the pic to actual size and have a perfect template with a minimum of monkeying around.

Hint:
You might be able to use a full-size DVD case as part of your creation.
