Ghost Trap Electro-Mechanics Guide PDF

Instant download

Description

THIS IS NOT A PHYSICAL ITEM. THIS IS AN ELECTRONIC DOWNLOAD - A 95 PAGE GUIDE ON HOW TO DO THE WIRING AND MECHANICS USING THE 3D PRINT GHOST TRAP FILES I RELEASED FOR FREE!

READ THE ENTIRE LISTING - I CANNOT GIVE REFUNDS ON DIGITAL ITEMS!

IMPORTANT NOTE! - as of 3-21-18 it looks like Adafruit has replaced the Arduino UNO with their version - the METRO 328 - it has been tested with the existing code and process outlined in the guide and worked fine. It should be a direct replacement for the Arduino Uno R3

This 90+ page PDF is a build guide for the electronic and mechanical components (lights, sound, smoke, doors, pedal) of my 3D printed Ghost Trap & Pedal - the files for which can be downloaded for free:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1394492

Please see the Sneak Peek PDF which includes the first few sections of the guide as well as a table of contents and example section of a build:
http://bit.ly/Electro_Sneak-Peek

The guide is geared toward the layman who can solder and carefully follow directions. The electronics are built outside the trap in modules with removable connectors. This allows everything to be tested then installed. The modular design allows for easier troubleshooting and maintenance.

- Fully illustrated with tons of photos - covers lights, sound, door, pedal and smoke!
- Fully bookmarked and internally linked for easy navigation
- Tool list
- Hardware list - the fasteners needed for assembly - also available in my Standard Hardware Kit: https://www.etsy.com/listing/271374377
- Full parts list - all electronic parts are listed - most are available from Adafruit and a shopping list is included
- Skills needed section & FAQ
- Sanding and painting
- Assembling electronic modules
- Updated Deluxe Trap and Pedal build directions with integrated electronics installation for a seamless build
- Arduino setup
- Hardwired hose and Foster connection guide so Trap can be triggered from Pedal while hose can still be removed
- Troubleshooting

Links for the Arduino code, SFX files and Adafruit shopping list are included in the guide.

RESOLUTION NOTE: I created the guide in very high resolution so all the pictures could be zoomed in on for clarity. Due to Etsy's stingy 20MB limit on digital files I had to compress the PDF. You can download this version immediately and a still do a full build. However, I will also email you a link for the 95MB high res version with great pictures within 24 hours. It will be a Mediafire email from me and I use the paid version which is a direct download and has no ads.

VERSION NOTE: unless you opt out I will also email you any updates to the guide. Your email will only be used for the high res version and updates - that's it.

SUPPORT NOTE: I am not an electronics expert nor programmer. I am very good at organization and writing guides and I wrote this guide based on the original layout and programming Jeremy Williams did. I can only give LIMITED support on any issues that may come up. This is not because I do not want to help - I just have limited experience with the core of the electronics.

FAQs

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.
