benird Posted August 16, 2016 Share Posted August 16, 2016 (edited) Well I've been posting little bits and pieces around here about this build for a few weeks now so I figured I should actually get the build thread started. So far I've acquired the hardware and software, built a mock up cabinet to test the software function and fix any issues around tables. The screens I'm using at an ASUS 27" monitor and a Soniq 43" TV. The PC is a i7 with 16GB RAM, 2GB Nvidia GTX 750 Ti and 128gb SSD running Windows 7 with PinballX, Visual Pinball 9 and Future Pinball. The interface is the 'Real Plunger' interface from @OzStick and the DMD that Chris sells too. So far both of these have been working a treat and I'm looking forward to exploring the DMD further. The cabinet will be 16mm MDF. I've also bough a PDI widebody glass from jordan08 on the sale forum. Attached are my starter mock-up photos. Hopefully in the next 2 weeks I'll get around to cutting the cabinet out and some actual assembly will start. I'm unsure yet whether I'll put decals on it or whether I'll put a Zeboards feedback system in it. I am confused as to what people use for trimming around the edges, is it easiest to use proper side rails and a lock down bar (if so do you need a bracket also) or would you recommend getting one fabricated? My initial measurements have the play-field TV sitting in about 20mm from the edges. Edited December 8, 2016 by benird Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
