I am just putting it out there that I am available to design pinball parts or pinball MODS for you. I have designed and produced quite a few parts & mods now and am known for a high quality design approach. I recently lost my job so for the moment I am falling back on my passion to help me and my family out. It's not a pity call but just offering a service to those that have ideas but not the design skills or the time.
The concept is I will design a part / mod for an affordable hourly rate and then issue you with all the design files on your approval so you can then take them to the laser cutter, Shapeways, iMaterialise or the many other options out there. Since you would own the design files you can mass produce the parts / mods yourself and earn some money - which in effect quickly pays back the fees it cost you to design the mod and allows you to earn some pinball pocket money.
What I ask is you first send me a pm with your idea and then I can send you a email address in which you can then send some sketches / images. Once I recieve that I will send you an estimate in time to design = $. If I go over that estimate in time you will not be charged (that is my loss) and if I go under you will be discounted and you benefit.
I am a Mechanical Engineer by trade and use to build light aircraft and cnc laser & router machines so I understand the different fabrication methods. I can design parts to be laser cut, routed or 3D printed. I have a in-house 3D printer that I can test print any designs for you as part of the design process. I would keep you updated with constant updates issuing viewable 3D files that you can view in a free downloadable 3D file viewer, enabling you to disassemble, section and measure your design - much better than photos.
