    I'm working on a 3d print and was wondering if anyone knew off hand what angle the flippers sit at relative to eachother, and if this angle is the same for all newer stern games?

    Thanks!

    Depends on the designer and/or game. Some like Deadpool & Ghostbusters are on the droopy side. Steve Ritchie games seem to have a flatter angle.

    Great, if they're not all the same I'd better measure it manually. Just what I need to know, thanks!

    There's a slight indentation in the playfield near the tip of the flipper. Those should line up with the dead center of the bat. Which is good to know, because sometimes they're installed a bit off at the factory, or folks replace flipper bats and mess up the angle, etc.

    Note that this is different from other manufacturers like Williams, who had alignment holes below flipper bats, not at the tip.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
