3D-Printed Objects

ABS, PETG, Strong resin, or Shapeways versatile plastic. You need something that is strong and also slightly flexible. If you are printing FDM it would be best to turn the models facing up, even though that would require a lot of supports, the top layer would be really smooth.

These took me ALOT of time (and money) to complete. If you make one and like it feel free to give a donation via paypal: 360alaska(at)gmail.com

Well done sir!

We need more entrepreneurial activity like this.

Thanks to ArmorAlley and PB3623 for donations. It helps with the cost of maintaining my 3d printers and the cost of printing many many many bezels to make sure I get everything perfect. 

 

I have something really neat coming out soon for the Macintosh 128k/512k/plus that will sole a BIG problem. Everyone will want one!

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but @maceffects has a 5¼" bezel for a Q950.

Well, I think he does. Look here:

I'll sell send him a PM and see if he still has it and if he'd be willing to let it be scanned.

Apologies for that last message. I hadn't realised that alaska360 had made two different types of 3D-printable file. The 51/4" bezel is among them.

I've actually ordered two of the tray loader bezels from shapeways, I'll post pics when they arrive. Originally, my hard drive was mounted in the 5.25 bay, I didn't any extra mounts so I mounted a compact mac hard drive mount behind the cdrom.

That's a good move. I don't have the 5-bay drive cage from the AWS95, but I do have a SCSI2SD in mine, so I just used Velcro tape on top of the rear bracket that slides forward (where you move the HD to).

 

Make sure you include the Shapeway options you selected when you post pics :) I think we'd all like to see the best material for this particular type of model (where you need some rigidity on the thinner parts).
