Mameman CNC Fun

Oh my! Bar = Raised!

you have a damn good eye for design!

Where was this thread 6 months ago when I started my pincab! Lol

Looks like I'll be pulling off my grill and marching down to my brotther in-law's machine shop and getting a little payback for some recent tech support.

mameman, do you think an animated sequence can be made in etched acrylic? What I'm thinking is sort of stop motion, in acrylic with the led's changing behind it to make it appear there is movement.

I would imagine you can get an real interesting effect with varied LEDs and an arduino.

You can also stack the acrylic one sheet behind the other and put different parts of the image on each sheet to vary color and depth.

Man that is some great work! I love it! Do you power the topper from 12v or just USB?

nope need 12v, so plugs right into your pc supply

Argh, I want! I can't take much more of this Pin2k teasing. Mameman, we will be in touch soon. Unless my girlfriend kills me first. :D

Start saving cash. You burn through it way to quick when building a pincab.

I believe you. I have a wish list made up already... the more I see, the more I add, the larger the projected bill gets. :D

You need a Arduino :D

Or you could do it even cheaper with a Picaxe chip! I love those little things - getting better all the time. I built a ghostbusters proton pack a couple years ago and used a Picaxe chip to animate a series of blue led's. Very easy to do, here is the pack in action;

Could just turn that on it's side, put in red led's and go nuts making different animations. Could probably use one board and run wires to both panels so they could be in sync etc.

Awesome project and the cnc stuff is incredible!

Looks cool, nice job on the pack. Given me some other ideas now ;)

Hehe, do what I can for ya! Could also power it off a relay to start/stop the led's to things happening on the table. Or scratch that and just assign one or more of the picaxe pins to digital input and the ledwiz etc. could start various animations depending on which one is set high. Heck just 2 pins could do something like;

low low = off no animation

low high = cycle back and forth slow (game start)

High low = cycle back and forth fast (multiball etc.)

high high = go bananas (free game etc sends them into crazy mode!)

Not sure what all you could key on there but I think there's a ton of options! Now finish it up so I can see it in action!

I can’t wait to get that on my FrankenPin build.

Kevin did my design

and mamman did a great job making it for me.

The other two turned out very nice!

Very nice! it'll look great on your cab.

I'm looking to have someone do some pinball side art if the person you used wants more jobs.
