    Finally decided to start a post about my Rick and Morty homebrew. I've had a few people ask about it and others wondering about the powder coat in Robert Stone's powder coat thread so here it is in its current state.

    The playfield currently in place was just for test cutting and checking measurements with my CNC router. It has also been used to test my custom designed "node" boards being run by a raspberry pi. I'm fully designing the playfield in Fusion 360.

    I will update later with some pics of the progress from when I started to the current state.

    Hi Ryan,

    looks cool. What are you using as a hardware platform? Looks like a RPi connected to a board with RJ45? Just passing the GPIOs to the playfield?

    This looks great!!!

    Jan

    Yep using the GPIO via RJ45 connectors. I designed my own two-layer boards in Diptrace and had them manufactured via Osh Park.

    Thanks for the comments everyone. I've been working on it for a bit but got sidetracked when we moved to a new house and had a kid. Hopefully I can make more progress on it semi-regularly so I can keep things interesting. My goal is to have it mostly done by the next SFGE.

    SFGE is starting to become a home for homebrew!

    Are you going to make it to SFGE this year?

    We are planning to go to SFGE on Saturday but I'm not bringing the game this year.

    What are you using software wise? MPF can drive GPIOs on the RPi out of the box in case you did not settle yet . http://docs.missionpinball.org/en/dev/hardware/rpi/index.html

    The real question is what's behind the little door?

    I cant wait to see how this turns out, a great theme off to a great start!

    Haha surprised nobody mentioned the little door. It is for attic access. This is in a spare bedroom on the second floor, across from our game room.

    #15 45 days ago

    Following as well. Such an awesome theme, good luck!

    #16 45 days ago

    Following. Not a theme I am really familiar with, but looks like an excellent homebrew effort underway!

    Looks great already! What did you use as a base for the cabinet? Is it a donor machine or did you build one yourself?

    Quoted from wacco:

    I built it myself based on measurements from one of my Stern machines. It uses mostly Stern style cabinet parts (rails, lockdown, legs, hinges, playfield support).

    Small update. I designed some back box parts I had been putting off and ran a test cut of them out of PVC. Needs some minor adjustment before cutting the final parts but pretty close. Also cut the backglass out of lexan, still waiting on my translite art to get here.

    Translite is in! Looks pretty good in person, cellphone camera is washing out the lit up photo. Now onto more playfield work.

    Good choice and good work on the translite! How about a plumbus shooter knob? Really cool idea and looks like great work so far; excited to follow.

    Better remove that key for the translite - Rick is already reaching for it.

    Thanks! I'm using a launch button instead of a shooter but good idea, a plumbus will be in the game though. I'm going to change the shooter button to a portal gun. Probably going to CNC it out of aluminum when I get some time and powder coat it grey.

    Haha I didn't even notice that when I took the picture.

    #26 34 days ago

    following !!! love the work so far

    #27 32 days ago

    I cut out the black trim pieces for the backbox on the CNC to replace the white ones.

    Thanks! I suck at art but I think it turned out pretty good. I saw Space Balls at SFGE and thought you did a great job on it, didn't get a chance to meet up but we were only there Saturday.

    I should have a bunch of time to work on this Sunday so I hope to get switch matrix wired up and get some more playfield design done in Fusion. I also need to wrap up some random bits in the cabinet.

    #33 31 days ago

    Looks kind of boring and empty. Nothing to shoot for from the left flipper. JK, keep up the good work.

    Where did you get the translite art printed?

    #35 6 days ago

    Holy moly.. that cabinet art looks like something you'd expect from one of the big pinball companies! I'll follow this project for sure

    Looks awesome but you'll have to dismantle it totally to get it through that door!

    Quoted from SickNate:

    The tanslite and cabinet art were both printed for me by Game On Grafix (www.gameongrafix.com). He did a fantastic job. The printing and material are very high quality and the turnaround was less than a week. Just make sure your files are high quality (I sent in vector .svg files) and the exact size that you want them printed.

    Sorry for the lack of updates the last couple weeks. I did work on the code/framework quite a bit but that doesn't give much to show you guys. Should have some major playfield updates soon.

    #40 6 days ago

    This is going to be awesome.

    following, with the realization that this is going to take a while...take your time, this is such a great project!
