I just joined the Slugfest club this afternoon! Mine is a project though. It is missing the ramp. The game is kind of annoying with a missing ramp. Not as annoying as the owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, but still annoying. Outside of that, it seems to be working!
Anyway, I have a 3D printer ... I have been itching to make something useful and put it out there for others to use. I figure something like this is not exactly "simple" to make, but is a good project for someone like myself that is a beginner/intermediate with CAD tools that aren't PCB or integrated circuit related . I'm sure I could make something that 'works', but I'd like it to be as accurate as possible. I figure the replacement would be pretty reliable if it is printed with ABS or better + solid infill.
Could someone with a spare ramp out there possibly trace the top of it when it is sitting face down and measure the non-curved bottom and sides? I also need the midpoint of the bottom up to the peak of the curve. Oh, and the thickness of the top . If so, just post a pic of the trace with the measurements here if you don't mind, or PM me. If you want paid for your time, I'd be more than happy to pay .
I'd probably need a couple more measurements after that ... I figure I could merge this with the pivot part of the ramp that someone else made and put it out on Thingverse as a free-to-use pinball part you can print yourself . These ramps seem to be going for a lot of money these days when they show up.
If you have a broken one laying around, I'm interested . As long as I can get the critical measurements, I'm sure I can make something acceptable.
I'll beg and plead for a ramp decal scan later . I'd put a Pirates logo on the ramp, but then the machine would up and trade itself for three project Gottlieb Ravens + a project Pokerino once restored.
