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. Files for printing your own pedal can be found here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1394639

This Deluxe Hardware Upgrade MUST be combined with the Standard Hardware Kit in order to have all the assembly hardware needed. It replaces many of the 3D printed parts with real parts such as the side boxes, pneumatic connector, relay socket and computer connectors.

The Standard Hardware Kit can be found here: http://etsy.me/1p8g17M

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.

Assembly Guide can be downloaded here, it's recommended to take a look so you know what's involved with construction:

Kit only includes:
- 8 or 11 pin octal socket for relay - both pictured, you ONLY GET ONE to match the relay you have. If you are also purchasing a Pedal Standard Kit I will match the relay and socket. If you already have a relay, let me know how many pins
- Red LED cover
- Ribbon cable connector
- Ribbon cable connector socket - this part is normally GRAY, currently I can only find it in black, so it will need painted.
- D-sub connector
- Edge connector - this part is normally BLACK, currently I can only find it in gray, so it will need painted.
- 'Nycoil' nut and bolt
- Exact Foster male connector used on movie traps. Includes nut, center contact and ring terminals to convert it into a working 2 contact connector for electrical hook ups
- Microswitch and mounting screws for installing in bellows so pedal can trigger trap
- OPTIONAL - Project boxes - exact boxes used on either side of the pedal - movie accurate. You will have to drill all the holes in the boxes, for this reason some folks like to just 3D print them.

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.
