HOLLY CAW...that looks awesome
The Future Is Now
I was thinking of powdercoating the pedals I have. I like your idea of swapping out the sensors on the time crisis guns, I have a few of those.
Would like to see what you come up for connecting the different guns.
I finished designing and printing my gun holsters. The first test print I made I only printed the first 20 or so layers this let me print it in under 2 hours and make sure that it fit. it did need a few adjustments. The second one I printed in full took 12 hours but fit perfect thanks to the adjustments I made. then I just mirrored the model and printed the other side.
aside from the lock all of the woodworking was done so I took some wood putty and filled in over all the screws, once dry I sanded and then wiped everything down with a damp rag and did a second round of fill since some of the screw locations were still apparent. for this you need to see with your hands. It's not done until you can run your hand over it and not know where the screws are.
One other aspect of this project is I couldn't figure out how to hang the LED frame. the problem is I have a motorized screen and which has a very large housing that the screen rolls up into hangs wider and in front of the screen meaning I have no good way to hang the LED frame from the top. As it is the frame is already 8ft wide. I eventually had the idea to mount extensions on the top corners to extend the width of the screen another 1ft or so on either side; enough to make it wider than the the screen housing.
A while ago I had designed and printed corner brackets for the screen, they had been test-fit but I needed to drill holes in the frame pieces to finalize it. These fit very snug and getting them on or off requires the use of a mallet, but I wanted the screws on there to keep them from working themselves apart over time.
so after measuring I drilled holes using my drill press...
since the pieces were so long I used a step stool to help hold up the other end.
Also since these were difficult to slide into the end pieces I used a file to chamfer the ends
the corner pieces are printed in ABS with 100% infill, PLA would not be strong enough for this. ABS also has a nice dull/matte finish which works well in this application. I've been super happy with these brackets.
sure. I'll post the file up later tonight.Is it maybe possible to maybe get the file so i can print it?

How important is the placement on the sensors around the monitor?
you'll want them evenly spaced but it doesn't have to be super precise.How important is the placement on the sensors around the monitor?
basically put the corner LEDs in the corners (they should be beyond the edge of the screen)
put the middle LEDs in the middle,
then the remaining ones just go half way between the corners and the middle.....
