I designed a Ghost Trap that can be 3D printed - you must print all your own parts such as body panels, knobs, doors, etc - I am selling the nuts, bolts, screws, etc to put it all together. You receive only the parts shown in picture #1 above.

If you have access to a 3D printer - download and print the parts for my Ghost Trap design:

See fully illustrated assembly guide here: www.charlesworth-dynamics.com/2013/08/instructions.html
It's a good idea to take a look before you buy so you know what you're getting into.

Once printed, the Trap exactly duplicates the movie version, with over 58 parts - I chose to use real assembly hardware for strength, aesthetics and to allow electronics be installed. This kit is all the hardware needed to assemble the 3D printed parts that YOU have made.

Contents of this kit:

- Over 100 screws for assembly, including socket head, button head, flat and set screws
- Door axles and set screws so they can be opened and closed
- High-strength neodymium magnets for removable rear panel and Foster hose connector
- Extras of most parts are included for those who (like myself) WILL drop and lose something

OPTIONAL - Hex keys, including two precision drivers for all screws. Since you are cutting threads as you drive the screws in, it's highly recommended that you add the hex keys to your order if you do not have 3/32" and 7/64" screwdriver-style hex drivers. Cutting threads with regular hex keys is very difficult and hex insert style bits will not be able to reach some of the screws. Sizes include: .050", 1/16", 3/32", 7/64", 9/64"

This is ONLY the hardware shown in the first picture, 3D printed Trap and Trap parts are not included and must be printed by you.

A Deluxe Hardware Upgrade kit can be combined with this kit to add even more real hardware such as wheels, metal handle, knobs, etc: http://etsy.me/1nwMVxH

Hardware kits are available for the Trap Pedal: http://etsy.me/1p8g17M

Electronics guide with door mechanism and smoke pump parts: COMING SOON.

Assembled Trap is for demonstration only. Trap and body parts are NOT included. This kit is for the nuts and bolts to assemble your own Trap that you print out.

Frequently asked questions about CharlesworthDynamics

3D printed objects are made by 'slicing' a digital model into many thin layers. These slices are sent to a printer that 'draws' each layer by extruding plastic through a hot nozzle.
There are a lot of different materials available now but the two most common are ABS (LEGO plastic) and PLA (biodegradable plastic) which is what Charlesworth Dynamics uses.
While the 3D prints aren't hazardous, they are not food, dishwasher or microwave safe.
They are very strong, but will break just like any plastic item if abused.
3D prints are very strong if printed properly but will break just like any plastic item if abused. Since the object is printed in layers, they will have a slightly ridged texture to them unlike a injection molded object. There is usually a 'zipper' which is a slight vertical seam that indicates where each new layer starts. They may have slight defects or blemishes and the bottom which adheres to the print bed may have some discoloration. Kit pieces may need minor clean up or trimming to fit together. This is typical of most 3D prints.
Yes, you can sand and paint 3D prints like a normal plastic model. You can even use products like Bondo Glazing and Spotting putty to minimize and smooth the 3D printed texture. Make sure to use a plastic-friendly paint.
I include a link for assembly instructions with your shipping notification, but here's a link for all assembly guides:

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or recommendations.
On occasion I will also build items out of 'real' parts and hardware - typically I use vintage Film & TV equipment parts. I have made lamps out of old lenses and jewelry out of old camera parts. Keep in mind that these are all used parts and will show their wear and tear and age - it's part of their charm.
