Rejuvenating plastics and/or 3D printable parts ?


Well-known member

Is there some known way to 'rejuvenate' the plastic from the PCI-era Power Macintoshes ? Not for look, just to make them less brittle, they seem to break when you just look at them.

Alternatively, is there some 3D-printable replacement parts or other solution available ? I'm looking at the 7500 (7600 are identical) specifically, but I guess it could be useful for all machines of this era.
