Posted this the other day in the thread specifically asking for one, but it should probably go here too. The quadra 800/840av PM8100/8500/9500 floppy bezel:

There is one caveat: I haven't actually printed it and tried it on a real life computer, because all my floppy bezels are still intact and I am worried/pretty sure i'd end up breaking it if I tried to take it off. So for now, printer beware. I have no reason to believe it wont work just fine, but you never know. If anyone wants to be the guinea pig, please let me know how it goes!

I had one made via ShapeWays (Man I have to get a 3D printer.). I just did a fit test today, without the other bezels installed, on a PM8100.  I am happy to report it seems to fit perfectly.  Awesome job!  Thanks!

Hi friends :)

silly question... does someone already modeled the Color Classic front badge/logo? I really would like to print me a personalized insert logo for my Mystic & Takky upgrades .. I don't want to repaint or destroy their originals.

I can print these myself (but I'm way too noob on free hand modeling) - got an small but awesome Prusa i3 for this job :D   just yesterday I printed me a first try backbezel for my Mystic - not bad for the first time bezel print. ...sad (stupid) thing only was the finishing process with a cutter went wrong :p  just cut myself  :sadmac:

Thanks :D

If you can get pictures all around the badge by itself (maybe scan the edge on a flat bed scanner, if possible, to capture the outside curvature), I could give it a shot. We'd need to measure all the bits with with a caliper as well, but it doesn't look overly complicated.

great :D sure, I will try to get you high resolution pictures of all sides and the exact measurements of the badge :) just give me a couple of minutes.

Hi,

sadly I couldn't find my fine measurement tools :( I just tried my best on some pictures :/ maybe someone also has a CC and could make it much better than I did ;)

Would it be possible to design 3D printed plastic CRT Adjustment Tools for use inside Macintosh CRTs? It is getting harder to find these toolkits online, and they just seem to be specially shaped pieces of plastic. Is there anything special about the tools, or would normal PLA plastic be safe to stick into an Analog Board?

Anything that isn’t metal will do - just fabricate your own from wooden skewers, plastic rod.

I find a wooden chopstick works well. Whistle down one end slightly with a knife or scissors blade. It’s easy.

This is what I use.  They are still available.

Does anyone have a printable model of the CD eject button for Performa 5200? I have a one in a nice shape, but the front bezel is missing the button.

Has anyone done feet and/or bezels for the PowerMac 6100 and its brethren? Just picked up a 6100 for cheap that's in a bit of a sorry state, and it's missing the front bezel/cover and one of its feet. This one won't ever be mint, but I'd love to cover up the whole and not have it wobble. The metal shields underneath the front covers were completely corroded from some gunk, so it'll be a gaping hole in the middle of the machine for now!

Not 3d printed, but Maceffects is already on top of the 610/61xx feet (injection molded):





I haven't seen drive bezels for anything beyond the 9xx and 8xx series Quadras.

Those do look really good, but they'll probably be outside of the price range I'd want to spend on them. This is an ugly 6100 that I got for cheap, so I'd be content with ugly but functional and cheapo feet. I might just try making a silicone mold out of one of them and just trying my hand at casting some feet.

Since all you need is 1 foot, send me a PM, I'm sure we can figure something to get you setup.

I don't like hijacking maceffects, but I have a couple from a scrapped centris 610...
