Re: Aristocrat payout slide

Has anybody considered 3d-printing new slides, or know if somebody does this already? !PUZZLED!
Now that we know the slides exist in plastic, why not make custom ones.. This would make it easier in the case if you want to convert your machine to take another coin for example.

I own a 3d-printer, and would be happy to give it a go, but my CAD-skills are not to good. So I would rely on someone to design the model of the piece on their computer.

several small parts have been made this way but ive never seen slides attempted, the strain on them would be very high

I suspect he maybe after non British denomination. No idea what plastic Aristocrat used, but as mentioned they would take a beating, Also 3D is still not cheap cheap cheap. The other thing to consider, if for example you wanted to convert to Kroner, you would need matching other components like coin acceptor parts (coin entry ring, acceptor weight lever and adapted diameter shims) coin tube, slide cover, lower lever guides and most importantly the slides posts to match slide height. Some of these can be manipulated to adapt to another coin, depending of the amount of change involved.

A number of people have had lots of success with 3D on Allwin coin parts and other areas and it seems a few people have the skills and software on this forum....I am awaiting for very very cheap 3D machines and fully automated software for simpletons like me with small pockets.. !WEIRD!
