I'd love to know where the masks/layouts/schematics for them are - or if they're just lost to time...
I know the WIM chip is basically a consolidation of an Apple Disk II card, and the SWIM is a minor improvement over that...we need more schematics for things - there has to be a way...i wonder, would apple not provide such things for vintage machines like they used to, to dealers?
I'd suggest neither. A new thread can be built with an OP having links to every part discussion covered so far in both threads. That way new project discussions can be added and earlier discussions in the first thread can be reopened for further development with a link to the original discussion keeping context intact?
Advancing printer tech and bed sizes are making larger parts possible. With falling "desktop" 3D milling machine prices, a sister thread comes to mind. Combining the two technologies seems to be the next step to me. 3D printing is like casting Ford's V8 block with subtractive milling processes resulting in a precision part. Milling aluminum reinforcement or connective sections to be inserted at a specific point during printing might make assemblages of much larger or more robust parts practical?
Has anyone here experimented with dovetails, mortise and tenon or other classic wood working jointery technique that lends itself to chemically welding printed sub-assemblies into larger parts? I'd think that's been going on somewhere out there for quite some time?
Err, no? I'm not sure where you sourced this erroneous information from, but you're completely wrong. We (Inertial Computing, who is the OEM that manufactures them) ran out of stock, due to a surge in demand, for about three weeks. Respectfully, please don't spread FUD. SCSI2SD V5.1's are now generally available again, and we will continue to make them as long as the parts can be sourced in volume, and the demand doesn't abate, which it's far from doing.
We also have plenty of V5.5's available, and have just ordered another thousand.
Hi all, quick question. I have a B&W G3 with the entry level 300mhz chip in it, and a parts donor with 400mhz chip with twice the L2 cache. Do I just need to switch the CPU card and the jumpers over to upgrade it or are the logic boards different and would require the whole board to be switched over?
