Figured I would make a post in here instead of cluttering up the JP thread anymore with my updates on these mods.
First some background. I picked up my first pin (a home use Jurassic Park) back in February of this year. I've been designing and 3D printing stuff for about 2 years and had recently picked up an Ender 3 to gain some more print volume. My first mod was a replacement for the gate. I know that Tim's mods had been producing these for awhile but it looks like his stuff is discontinued now. So I came up with my own design that tied into the existing wiring.
After that I started looking at other opportunities in the game that hadn't been done yet. I noticed that there was some room above the launcher coil that currently had an image of what appeared to be the barrel of a stun gun. This looked like a good spot to add in something interesting. I modeled the gun after the picture and came up with a 3D representation of it.
After a couple of iterations getting the height of the unit right I ended up with the final grey design.
I also printed a black version on request from some posters in the JP thread. It ties into the apron better than the grey. The hexagons on top are a waterslide decal.
The LED lighting hooks into a GI bulb nearby using a pair of alligator clips.
I'm also going to test a clear lens with an amber strip since I picked up a couple LED strips from comet.
I have about 5 of the yellow/black combo ready to go for $40USD + shipping.
I'm working on getting my pinside store up, but I'm running into some technical difficulties right now.
