I recently completed a 3D printing Batman Forever Gun Handle. Looking to start another 3D project, so let me know what machines could you restore if you could just find that one part? Or if you have a idea for a new part.

Do you smooth them out so the 3D printing lines don't show?

Transporter cross over ramp.

That would have to be vacuformed. Ramps can't be 3D printed...yet.

#5 3 years ago

Plastics, playfields, backglasses, and lockdown bars for just about every Williams I own are not available. Thank you very much!

I no longer have the game but Mr Big Shot for Dr Dude is pretty hard to track down.

#9 3 years ago

Not sure if this is what you were talking about but I can't find this assembly anywhere:

You'd have to machine that with metal, not print it with plastic.

#12 3 years ago

Is 3D printing up to par for items you can see yet? I was under the impression that it was great for things you couldn't see because it was pretty solid but not too pretty looking. Those handles look a little rugged, how does the texture compare to the original?

#13 3 years ago
Quoted from ForceFlow:

No.. It's not. It's injection molded.

#14 3 years ago

Ah, already been reproed I see. I had a hell of a job finding a NOS one for my Dr Dude a few years ago. Good to see it has been re-made.

#15 3 years ago

The plastic bracket (ball eater) from this assembly seems unobtanium. I eventually used a fiberglass / resin repair kit to salvage the broken one that I had. Same part in Data East Secret Service as in Bally Mousin' Around, I think.

Ah-ha, that's unusual.

#18 3 years ago

The plastic that houses the start button on data east games like Ricky n bullwinkle is unobtanium and I need one! I know it's also on other data east games

#19 3 years ago

I bought a bullwinkle start button housing from a a german company, pinballcenter a couple months back, might check them. It was close to my broken one.
There is a thread asking for WABAC ramp interest, but no production in sight yet. Thats a sad tale.

#20 3 years ago

The Batman Forever ramps.

Seriously, if there was a zombie apocalypse, could ramps be 3d printed?

#21 3 years ago

The cave plastics from Torpedo Alley. I'd bet that almost every surviving example needs new cave plastics. I re-sculpted mine using Apoxie Sculpt, and they look a lot better, but they're far from perfect.

NOS ones still come up occasionally on ebay. Now the plastics for that game, particularly an unbroken shooter lane one... been looking for that one for years.

That sparkly sticky foil on the Mix Master is a swine to get too (or was when I had the game).

#24 3 years ago

A lot of people need Shadow Rings....myself included

#25 3 years ago

With the amount of messages I got when I put an NOS Judge Dredd main ramp up for sale a couple weeks ago, I'm guessing that is hard to come by too.

I'm pretty sure i'm never going to find a plastics set for my Sega Apollo 13 pin.
I did find a spare blue moon ramp though.

I think Fire! Might use the same assembly. Not sure if that would help your search or not.

Worth a shot thanks!

Yeah, those guns look awesome, but a little rough. I have a printer that uses ABS plastic and my models look smooth as glass after an hour of acetone vapor treatment.

I hope so, but the SLA 3D prints are WAY too fragile right now to be practical.

How about someone 3d printing these? They are the players for the 1968 Bally World Cup soccer game

By the looks of it, you can make them out of Play-Doh.

I second this - the ball lifters for Banzai Run are impossible to find.

I know it is a ramp, but the Volcano ramp for Congo.
