Quoted from cobra18t:

Do you guys ever CNC probe scan a ramp and then CNC a new mold from the scan? It seems like that could be a nice way to do it with lower risk to the donor ramp. You would then have the ramp scan or mold 3D model that you could propagate to other people if you wanted.
Sincerely,
-A pinball enthusiast jonesing for those Demo Man ramps

I am sure its possible, but CNC cutting a ramp mold would be very costly. You would need to sell hundreds of them to get your money back.

Unless he is volunteering time to that

I am slowly bringing a large CNC online, so I am evaluating the possibilities. Because forming runs would be small, I was thinking wood molds might be fine. Agreed, the costs would go up significantly for aluminum molds.

It would be difficult, next to impossible, to use wood for thermoforming. You need an epoxy that does not deform when heated and cooled.

Quick question on Hurricane, you listed the centre ramp (the Comet ramp confusingly.)

Have you also formed the main Hurricane ramp, that goes around the entire playfield? It's a big one!

But it gets broken easily, so a good contender. I'd like one of you ever do!

Got my corkscrew ramp installed and then my speech went out so I had my boards rehabbed. just got Comet back in action. Painted the top edge to match the original ramp. Had to shave off the long edge of the ramp to clear the cabinet side. inner ramp lip didn't clear the plastic mounting post so I had to file it to clear. also had to cut the edge off my plastic by the food and drink to fit. On the good side its pretty much bullet proof. You can sail the ball thru the ramp no problem..

Hi! Have you ever thought about making the Green Ramp of the Gottlieb Mario Bros. or have these ever been requested? I know a few people here in Germany searching them for quiet a long time now - including me

Same question here, we need a center ramp. One of our Comets is unplayable until we find a center ramp.

Thanks!

If memory serves I recall Mark saying the Comet center ramp would be the 1st project he does on the new heater.
