That's what thickness I went with on this one.

Controller with socketed connections for everything including light mod add-on. Production sample.

Using the semi-clear bracket I posted prior, here is the light mod working off the controller. The only piece I need (aside from the CPR plastic lid) is the button array. I am waiting for UPS to get here so I can test that out. It's a 2 or 4 button array (not sure which I am going with) which will be included with the controller so you can set the lighting color and effect.

Are you powering the arduino through the usb, or the gnd and VIN pin

Awesome work! After about 4 hours of testing fitting, adjusting... think mine is a go! I’ll post a video soon as I get it rocking.

Lots of prototypes, but I got a solid final top bracket (4th one) with a spine and only 3.5mm thick

Nice! CPR just told me they shipped the lid brackets as well

#463 1 year ago

Anyone interested in the trunk lid bracket I made I put it up on Thinverse for folks.

#464 1 year ago

Buttons are here! Since there are four, let's see what I can make them do. One for color, one for brightness (maybe two, one up one down) and one for effect. Seems about right.

Very good Job I need to order one

#466 1 year ago

My chest is up and running!
Few things, make sure to relocate the trunk wire harness in front of the bracket (towards the trunk) to provide adequate room for the linkage. Also, I mounted my Servo to the inside of the mounting hole, I tried both and on my machine this lined up better.

Been quiet in this thread...

harryhoudini how are things progressing with your version? I am a buyer....looking forward to it, however I am not in a hurry - I would prefer to wait for a well done product

#468 1 year ago

We have at least 20-30 chest mods complete. The piece that we are waiting on right now to arrive from Canada is the clear lexan lid that CPR cut for us. They shipped a first batch of 50 or so to me last week. Once that arrives I just have to test fit. I am finishing up some of the arduino programming to work with the buttons for the light controls. If you did not order the light add-on we will probably start shipping your mods in order, shortly. Once the lights are done we will ship the rest in order. More brackets are on their way from geteos so we'll be able to keep production running. My wife has completed all of the wiring harnesses so it's just a matter of building the bracket pieces for the ones that are on the way.

Awesome! Thanks for the update and putting this together for those of us that don't want to do it ourselves

#470 1 year ago

I am now following. Just did see this. Took a few days away from pinside being busy at work and home. This is great! Do you have one out there on a route being used? I am wondering about durability.

#471 1 year ago

I have one on route, in my game room lol. It has been working great no problem.

#472 1 year ago

GitHub working again!

What servo is being used here? I didn’t see that it the .ino sketch, and missed it if it’s in the thread somewhere..

Edit: never mind! Read the read.me

Damnit UPS

In Transit 07/23/2019 1:21 A.M. East Syracuse, NY, United States
Past Event Shipped 07/18/2019 7:00 P.M. Dartmouth, NS, Canada

I guess maybe customs? I don't know. 5 freaking days.

Sorry guys, still waiting on the lexan lid brackets. In the meantime we're hard at work assembling everything else. I think we're on track to have 40 done shortly, so once the lid comes in we should be shooting these all your way.

If anyone still wants just the bracket and the lexan lid (perfect for lighting mods) I can add those to the site

Do you plan to make a full kit with the mecanism and the light?

I'll be putting it on a route machine. It's ALMOST done and then I can install it. Went a little crazy with the design. (Before you say anything, some of the graphic keys are wrong ATM. The wiring works, though. )

I think it'll hold up fine, but I'll be the first to tell you if it doesn't.

Quoted from fifou313:

If you buy both items (even if they are in seperate orders) we will install the light on the lid and provide the necessary connections to hook it up to the controller. IF we ship out the chest mod first and you didn't get the light, it's an easy install. We designed the arduino connections so you can add the light later. The install of it on the chest is really simple, basically just attach it to the lexan lid bracket and run the wires down.

https://magicalproductions.miiduu.com/actuated-chest-rgb-led-lighting-add-on-jersey-jack-pirates-of-the-caribbean

I know it got confusing, this all came together quickly. We've gone through orders and matched up who ordered what, contacted those people who may have just ordered a lighting mod and not the chest mod, etc. If there are any questions feel free to PM me or contact us on the site.

I don't recall if anyone else did this but since our kit is a slightly different I'll be doing an install video once we get the lids. Or maybe I'll do it with the prototype lid so everyone can watch it ahead of time

I can’t get a sense of how much difference the led kit makes. Is it interactive?

#478 1 year ago

I think it is interactive in the sense that the led is RGB, and blinks with the heartbeat.

Currently I have a red one in mine and it looks great, but I’m going to upgrade to the programmable one harryhoudini is selling.

Looks professional, neat, and organized. Well done.

Quoted from dts:

Yeah, like soulrider911 said it has some controls. It turns on and off when the chest opens and closes. It has an option to be steady on or have a heartbeat type effect. And you can choose the shade of color. I posted some videos here, I'll find them and link and put them on the website too.

Btw, here is the finished controller with the lighting buttons attached. Plug and play baby!

Can never make too many brackets lol

#483 1 year ago

each one except one had some issue. The supports were taking off the little nubs to hold the wires

Quoted from Trooper11040:

Heh. This is my first time with a 3D printer, I've had so much fun with supports and threads and adhesion. Oh the joy. Luckily for everyone I am not doing the printing for most any of the production pieces we sell.

#485 1 year ago

I own a prusa MK3S...great investment!

#486 1 year ago

Nice trooper11040 now I j ow what you meant by the nubs breaking I have the older bracket

#487 1 year ago
Quoted from Trooper11040:

I assume you're using PLA....

Don't need supports for them on most printers. Should print without them. Only the giant open area on the right of the upright needs supports. On my OCD version after these, I actually added a little wedge to the back side of the wire brackets to give it a little more heft.

Quoted from Trooper11040:

DEFINITELY doesn't need supports for the wire brackets on this. I have three of these for printing, so I know they work without supports for the wire brackets.

Are you using any particular settings to avoid printing support?

#489 1 year ago
Quoted from Trooper11040:

I am using support on the really big gap, just not for those little wire management pieces. They come out fine. If you don't want to waste time and just check, cut off the bottom of the model and just print the top part where all the action is and see how it prints. You can print that top part at 40% fill or so in less than 2 hours. I'm using Prusa and Hatchbox filament pretty interchangeably so I don't think it matters.

HarryHoudini someone suggested that the lid should open slowly but close quickly kinda like gravity slamming it shut.

I agree that this would look better than a slow open and a slow close. Dropping shut would seem like a more realistic effect.

Any chance of implementing this or having it as an option while waiting on parts?

If you get the lighting mod it comes with 4 buttons. I was thinking one button might give that kind of control. I haven't looked yet, but could be feasible. Could have button option without lighting, I suppose as well.

Oh my list to look in to.

Do you recommend light rubber pieces for the trunks lips, or does this even close hard or abrasively?

#499 1 year ago

What you're doing is everything right! Funny enough, I'm going to be doing the same this weekend so I can make an entertaining video for all the kits we're sending out. I keep watching the CPR package for the lid plastics and they are due here Monday, still! So, all barring any issues we are going to be shipping kits very soon.

#500 1 year ago

Almost done. Just need to get the hinge on, solder the connections and add the linkage!
