3D printed parts thread

Post by Chnillapoil »

I will try to print it in vase mode and see if it's strong enough.

I tried different configuration and because plastic is thicker than metal, the best is to forget the nipple :lol: . The most important is that it supports the metal part, the screw will align all the parts together anyway....

On Genesis, I want to redo the things under the playfield. I have a new, better looking robot. But the "mad scientist lab" cardboard decor SUCKS.

This is what I mean:

The question is... are you game to do a 3-D version? LOL

I would replace the 4 "light lenses" with something else, so they could be filled out. So, a 3-panel system.

Challenge sent. LOL
Made a new robot for my Genesis....need a bit of refinement :)

Is it practical for someone in his basement to use lidar or something similar to scan an object in 3D for 3D printing later?

There's software that can give a reasonable approximation from taking multiple photos. Enough to have a start point to replicate the object but typically the best results come from recreating the object as a solid using the scan as guide.

I open source most of my work but this took a ridiculous amount of time to create a file that builds internal cavities lofting without support and fits proper 555 and 47 sockets in it. I'm also in the late stages of making a proper Rolleiflex camera not the traditional rectangular blob that's around.... For now I want to hold onto the designs since I put a stupid amount of effort in getting them perfect. The slot illuminates internally with a 555 Led that sits in a housing; installation is a matter of slipping it over the wire frame and running two sets of wires down the existing hole there to G.I. and the slot machine bulb. Fit and clearances are perfect. No drilling out an antique made in Hong Kong pencil sharpener and strapping brackets to it. My objective was to mimic something Williams/Bally would have produced for this application. One piece mould with maybe one or two colors that would have been well design but inexpensive to manufacture in quantity. Some mods are overemphasised in final details whereas for production detail is in the initial design and not the part. Mods should look like they were there not added IMHO.

Wow awesome work!!! I'm flabergasted really ,
I understand you want to keep the file right protected, I would pay for sure if I had a TZ.
I'm really glad you bring your own way of doing things. Keep on posting !

If it were a part used to save a game I'd certainly post it. I think it's great that things which couldn't be fixed now have another new lease on life. I will see if there are things that fall into this category and draw them up over time and post those designs. Awhile back I did a search on Thingiverse for pinball related stuff and there was a bit but really not as much as I would have expected but it seems people that have been into 3d printing have gotten quite a bit better at the whole process so maybe that experience will now be seen in tackling accurately making components.

Is it possible to mold semi translucent plastic?
I believe the Data East and Capcom mini mars domes are unobtainium.

Yeah with UV Photocuring resin 3d printer you can make translucent objects of very high detail. The printers have come way down in price like the Elegoo Mars for example. I haven't one... yet but it would be interesting to see how strong the cured parts are.
