Proton Pack build continued

Over the weekend I printed out the Proton Pack motherboard onto A1 paper. This allowed me to accurately position the holes. Each part of the PP has several mounting holes underneath, and I am using #4 x 19mm self tappers to fasten the individual parts. It's starting to look pretty good:

Who ya gonna call...2

Well here it is, the worlds first, fully 3D printable Ghostbuster's proton pack. There are 3 parts missing that others have already created, so there seemed little point in duplication. It's missing the synch generator details, but these will be posted asap.


All the files are available on Thingiverse.

Seeing things running through MY head.

In my quest to design a fully 3D printable Ghsotbusters' Proton Pack, I've had to make the part known as the 'Synch Generator'.

This is a large part, and it's the biggest thing I've ever made, weighing in at about 770g.

It's made of 6 paired copies, plus two other pairs, and is designed to be bolted together with M4 bolts. I printed it all in PLA to avoid ABS warping. Both my printers are in heated chambers, but even that struggles to prevent warping on such large parts.
