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.

This Deluxe Hardware Upgrade Kit MUST be combined with the Standard Hardware Kit (http://etsy.me/1nwNdod
) in order to have all assembly hardware needed for the 3D printed parts. The Deluxe Kit replaces as many 3D printed parts as possible with real movie-accurate hardware, such as metal handle, knobs, wheels, switches, etc.

The kit is also useful for prop builders making traps from scratch, as these are still needed and are movie-accurate, hard to find parts.

Kit Only includes:
- Wire mesh for trap opening
- Intense pink lighting gel to match effects from film if lights are used
- Wheel bearings - rolls smooth!
- Metal handle - designed so screw can be recessed or stick out on top
- Movie-accurate toggle switch and LED cover for rear box
- Red and yellow LED for front panel and rear box
- Movie-accurate metal knurled knob for Ghostbusters 2 trap
- Movie-accurate male Foster brass connector
- Nut, center rod and ring terminals to turn Foster connector into a 2 contact conductor for electrical hook ups

OPTIONAL - I have a limited stock of the real resistor (last picture) which mounts to the vector plate. The original is the CAL-R MC 250, this is an alternate CAL-R stock number but identical in shape and size. New old stock. It will mount directly to my 3D printed trap.

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.
