Title: NeXT Sound Card mounted in Cube Back Filler plate
Post by: Rob Blessin Black Hole on March 06, 2018, 11:24:44 pm
Hello NeXT Community: We are tinkering with a prototype of moving the soundcard inside the Cube , prototype 1

and yes we will mount speaker and microphone and leave room for the dimension board! I think we should be able to do pass through VGA Video mount on modded board
or just our custom VGA Y cable for use with flatpanel .  
Also using Brians Megaload board for Model 152 power supplies.  
Best Regards Rob Blessin

Hi Rob,

Looks good. Are you making new card covers or modifying existing ones? Also no need to mount the VGA to the board. You could just use a panel mount style connector.

We used the existing fillers , however hey must be stainless steel because they were difficult to Dremmel.   I think a custom 3d printed filler plate or entire back might be cool as well. As I have a few Cube Shells missing front and back plates.  I want to try out the 3d scanner we have and see how well it works. I want to make some Cube Feet and 4000 Feet ..... more fun projects.
