    I really feel there are some fantastic 3d printed mods out there.

    They cost us nothing to make but time.

    I am willing to share my STLs or help make them with anyone thats willing to do the same .

    Lets post here.

    Great thread idea. What do you have now?

    Quoted from marioparty34:

    As of this moment . Some really nice floor levelers and a vase for my wife.

    Pinball stuff...... some game specific brackets and a bench for FG.

    #4 1 year ago

    I took a file I found online for the early Williams drop target backs / guides and modified it a bit and its perfect now.

    I did design a new mount for Stern's Cap/ Tip issue . When they seen it they said it was fantastic but they would have to verify with the heat displacement,

    I always like these threads. It might be nice if the first post could be an index of posts with stl's or if people could use a specific tag when posting stl files, something like :stlfiles:, so that you can easily search the thread to find things. Some of the other threads have become long and tough to search.

    Here's a few :stlfiles:
    Flipper button - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3715237
    Street Fighter replacement car - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3579086

    Quoted from woody76:

    anyone have a flipper bat file?

    Can you print a flipper bat that would withstand the abuse? Seems like even nylon would break at the layer seams.

    Quoted from PinMonk:

    would not be for use in a actual pin. for another project.

    #13 1 year ago

    Shapeways printed flipper bats in nylon work as have had a set running for 18months. For game use though you need a custom post to attach it.

    I also have a home printed flipper bat for shower taps as I can't get a particular locking piece for the fancy handles so what was temporary has been there for a year, lol

    #15 1 year ago

    I generally use OpenSCAD to design parts. I think better in scripting than I do spatially. I'm working on some stuff for updating my drop targets, but I don't have it useable yet. I do have some brackets that I designed. Once I get home, I'll make sure that they are in my public github and I'll link them.

    So, any other cool Pinball related prints? STL's?

    Just replaced all my cheesy 2/$1 Walmart cupholders I had (and hated) for years, with newly printed ones.

    Great thread, this might be just what I was looking for. I'm looking for someone who wants to take on the project of reproducing the space scaffolding featured in the 1984 Williams space shuttle in 3D. Can provide the original Plastics for scan if that helps. Any takers?

    #20 1 year ago

    Thanks, I'd like to think so. I just added a hardtop to my shuttle and rebuilt the pops and thought a 3D homage to the original would be awesome over those. I have the astronaut that's the right size and scale., so 3D scaffolding would be pretty cool, but alas,I'm the last person on Earth that doesn't have a 3D printer.

    I made a quick and dirty seat from the picture. I have no idea of scale or thickness, but you should be able to adjust it in your slicer. PM me and I'll send it to you to try. I assume you'll want to print it in nylon for durability. It gets a lot of abuse.

    Here's some info from a 3d printing thread I made in January 2018. Hope it will help someone.

    Here is a list of usable (as in reasonably similar in appearance) factory pinball parts on Thingiverse found in a "pinball" search as of 1/15/2018. Not a bad list at all! Many aren't exact replicas but if you want to save money or don't care about the absolute details, this list will be helpful. It's also not all inclusive but covers at least 90% of the good models available.

    Hahaha, story of my life. That looks exactly like the rollover used on the Williams Aztec that I'm refurbing, had to order them from PBR. Was mad at myself that I haven't taken the time to learn how to design my own prints, especially since the rollover is such a simple piece. I definitely would have tried your redesign, nice work!

    Made my own ST transporter mod for the flashers LMK. They are faceted vertically so the light goes up . They look unreal with CT 5 led towers in them.LMK if you would like the STLs.

    I jumped on the new ELEGOO Saturn and really excited to start messing around with pinball mods. Sadly probably be a couple months before it arrives. Do you guys print with filament or resin?

    #34 11 months ago

    Toyotaboy. Thanks for your interest, however as fate would have it ,with the help of fellow pinsiders I now have a 3D version in my machine. This is an early version of just the Truss pictured in the photos, the new final version also includes bumper cap assemblies , and is modeled in a modular fashion which leads to a cleaner print and simpler installation. PM me your email address and I can send you the file.

    I'll try one. Prepare for a run on sentence.....
    I put my Willy Wonka Gobstopper metal plate 3d cover on thingiverse that keeps the switch roller from getting stuck behind metal thingy when you smash the blue rubber thingy with the ball to make the secret machine spin around.
    This is a test because I don't really know how to do it. It's for non commercial use and free for everyone to use and share. If you remix it please continue to give your improved design away for free.

    Does anybody know how to export a

    An .stl but it ends up too small and there are these strange posts (I think they are supposed to be holes)

    i guess i do the same you tried. -> Export ->Stl
    what printing Software do you use? I do not much care about the size of the STL file created from blender. I will adjust it later in the printing software.
    STL are lossless scalable that should not give any problems, to make them bigger or smaler.
    I am not sure what you are talking about "strange posts" or holes. The things i export are the same like they are in blender.
    But i have to admit i only made some svg files thicker.
    Maybe you could provide a picture?

    I will do that, thank you!

    I’m using the latest Blender, and tried in both Prusa Slicer and in Cura. Both behave unexpectedly as I mentioned. I’ll post a photo. I am trying my best to keep the dimensions exact because this is a rounded part and hard to measure exactly.

    Is there some etiquette about sharing mods? Next up for me is the back cover for the stand up Star Trek insignia and the gravestone for my Dracula. These are currently for sale and I don’t want to take away from people trying to earn a living. At the same time I love how open the 3D printing community is and it’s weird not to upload my stuff when I download everyone else’s.

    Speaker rings are pretty generic so wasn’t as concerned about them.

    #48 6 months ago

    I have been sharing high speed stop lights. More detail than original one. Also in vertical (to mount to the rear side- when using the new clear ramp) and traditional horizontal version.

    Also the crash dummy body from party zone.

    As long as you’re not exactly copying someone’s work, it should be fine. Most people are buying those mods because they don’t have a printer, or (like myself) don’t have time to build it themselves. So I can’t see that it would impact sales dramatically. If you have a 3D printer in the first place you’re already more inclined to DIY anyway

    I printed the hobbit cupholder and have it on my LOTR. Looks great.

    And while we are on the subject of copyrights, etc. I saw that someone on Facebook is selling these. Did they get (or need) your permission?
