Can anyone make models for the compact Mac floppy disk drive gears that break often. Also, the Apple leaf and CD bezels for Clamshells would be awesome too. Lastly, a slot Loading Optical disk drive cover for Pismo/Lombard PowerBook G3s would be nice as well. I have access to both a MakerBot Replicator 2 and MakerBot Replicator+ (we're now on our 4th MakerBot Replicator+ As the 3 previous were recalled/faulty).

In theory (my own theory) you should be able to use a filastruder kit to recycle platinum / powerbook grey / whatever color plastic parts from damaged / throw-away Mac cases so we have matching ABS filament to print new parts.

Pretty neat!

Doesn't that just take pellets though? How do you turn broken Apple plastic into pellets?

Easy. Order a Quadra 840AV on eBay.

But wait, there's more! Order now and you'll also receive a collectible non-working motherboard!

I have those already, but I use the 840AV case to hold up one end of my coffee table. I also have a box of nasty side panels etc. from 6x00 FuglyTowers to rip into MacABS rod on the bandsaw for use with my plastic welder. }:)

There are a few videos on youtube demonstrating this.

Would this 3d printer work or is it too small

I wouldnt recommend it.. No idea what that brand is. I had a Monoprice Maker Select I3 (Wanhao Duplicator i3) and it was fine, but I hated leveling it. now Im looking into a lulzbot or something, but for over $1000 I dont know if its worth i9t to print a part every now and then...

I’ve experimented 3d printing some Wallstreet hinges pieces.

My idea was to try with some carbon fiber reinforced PLA plastic, which is stronger than PLA but less flexible, and doing the hole for the axis small enough with a slot at the top, making like a clamp around the axis to have a good resistance to rotation so to have the screen lid staying in place.
Here are picts of the first « prototype » , the black part , the piece in indeed very strong.

But even though the axis is very tightly fitted inside, it doesn’t give enough resistance to rotation, and the screen rotates too easily , doesn’t stay in place… :-/
if someone have some idea how to make it more stiff. Maybe with some silicon grease ?
 
Here a Screenshot of the second try ( I had to do some adjustments on the dimensions of the first try on the photo above to fit in the case , small dimension error).

Would love it if someone could come up with a battery box/holder for a PB5300

Off topic: What printers do you guys have? I had a Wanhao i3, but I'm upgrading to a lulzbot Mini soon...

I think the Prusa i3 is the one with the best quality I have seen so far from local enthusiasts. But, to get the best results requires an enclosure with ventilation and good temp controls.

 

Nearly every complaint I have read about these units involves either poor filament or the alignment of the vertical bearings. Filaments can easily be swapped but the bearings require a bit more care.

I have a Monoprice Maker Select Mini ... it works pretty well for what it is - a $200 3D printer. The only insurmountable challenge is the small size, but I live in a small condo so it works for me. There is a public workshop in the neighborhood where I can make larger prints if I need to.

Tangential to off topic topic: I made an acetone vapor chamber from a paper towel dipped in nail polish remover and a mason jar and made a really nice shiny Benchy boat last night, it looks beautiful!
