IP4300 Tray F Dimensions

I’m looking to find the dimensions on the ‘F’ tray for cd printing. I know, I can get them on ebay and maybe amazon, but I would like to build it myself.
If anyone is willing I would appreciate it. I would need…

the overall dimensions of the board
the measurements from top and side for the disc cavity (widest part)
the size of the two reflectors at the top and their distance from top and side
the distance from the top of board of the triangle markers for inserting disc

Your help would be appreciated. I’m also sure many others would like this info as it just isn’t out there anywhere that I have been able to find.

Thanks

These links are no longer valid. Does anyone have the dimensions? I am wanting to make an Illustrator template so I can design and print in Adobe Illustrator directly to my CD tray, but I need to know the dimensions so I can position the drawing correctly on the “page”.

You can use any image file in the Canon LabelPrint software for printing. Just save it with square dimensions in BMP or JPG format. Use it as a background in the print software.

Yeah I was thinking of doing that as a last resort, but wouldn’t it be a lot nicer to just be able to design everything an print directly from Illustrator? Unless there are other problems that I am not anticipating, it seems all I really need to do this are the proper dimensions of the CD tray.

I guess I could just measure it myself with a ruler, but I’d like to avoid wasting discs to get the measurements right.

You’re gonna waste discs anyway, getting the alignment just right. There are templates around for Photoshop and a few others, so Google and find them. Most of the ones I’ve seen are for the “F” tray.

For test discs, consider using paper labels on old CDs.

That’s a good idea, I think I will try that. :slight_smile:

Aha, I found the proper dimensions. They’re in the images on the following page (in millimeters): http://damnprinter.com/141/nero-cover-designer-119mm-template-for-tray-f.html
