Topic: custom Bezels

The original Chumby has an LED hole in upper left side. The newer ones instead have three little holes for the mike in the lower left side.
Here is a picture of the original version 1 Chumby Bezel.

Does anyone have both - Can they help me to know if the Bezels are the exact same shape. They look slightly different in the images.

If they are the same then I will only have to make one Bezel for both models.
Can anyone indicate measurements for the three little holes so I can add them into the model ?


Re: custom Bezels

Don't bother at all with the bezel with the hole in the upper left - that was only for the limited run alpha prototypes (aka Foo, Katamari) units.  Only a few hundred were manufactured, they were only for developers, and there are only a handful still operational.  The device is no longer supported by the company, and most people that received them (for free) have replaced them with production units.  At this point, I don't believe we have any of these units in the field that are actively used.

Also, it was not an LED - it was a light sensor.

Re: custom Bezels

Thanks for that Duane. So that just leaves one question.
Is it the same shape as the new models ?

If it isn't then I wonder if there is a new CAD file for the Bezel ?
Any official comment ?

Re: custom Bezels

Yes, the overall external shape is the same.

I'l ping bunnie to see where the CAD files are for the new one.

Re: custom Bezels

Any Progress  or information ?

Re: custom Bezels

I'll have to look into why our links on our website are out of date, they should have the latest stuff there...I requested a new push of items but maybe there was some confusion.

Re: custom Bezels

Thanks bunnie :-)
FYI here is a visual compare between the two.
and in case anyone is interested I'm using Deep Exploration.
