This a very interessting question, my partner would like to sell complete ready to run only but I told him that we have to sell whatever the customers look for, and that will be empty enclosures at the most.

As for the artwork, I have to admit that I am not a pro, but would be grateful if you enlight me. Are you talking about different print-technics?

Anyways, the material is laminat, so its no need for you guys to paint them and artwork is planned to be applied.
In order to do that we have to setup an artwork-library.

a good idea, you could sell a "kit" . all cut wooden parts  in a package to remount.   just missing the bigger heavier ones (screen !!).

Sir, we have that in mind too.
I hate when sellers have their own way without to care the customers wishes.

So people that are on budget or live far away so that shipping would be too much we will offer kits.

Since everything is saved in CAD-Files we are able to sell repair-panels as well.

If your cabinet got a water-damage (that's usually on the bottom side) he can order just to sidepanels as a repair-kit....same for every other part of the cabinet.

Being from Austria, I consider myself a future customer, if things work out. Also, count me in on Hyper Sports Wink.

As a sidenote, I've got a basement full of cabs for measurements (no Joust or Hypersports, but still ...)

Martin


Martin, for guys that let us measure there cabinets we offer HUUUUUUUUUUUGE discounts and other supports like getting CNCīed repair woodparts as well as mechanic work for free.

I am, for instance work on a bearing-play and steering-travel free mechanism for my SEGA Hang-On as I want my cabinets perfectly in both....conditons and functionallity. The handlebars had dead steering-travel like 2cm on both sides...the entire mechanics is in bad condition anyways. If you have similar problems with one of your cabinets we offer to help you in exchange Smiley

We have 2 collectors that support us at the moment.

Please, send me a list of what you have, I am sure we can work something out together.

And anybody can join my group on FB named the M.A.M.E.-Project, thats the place where I post everything first.
Its a small group but with very knowledgeable guys.

The Tempest makes very slow progress....to be reeeeeally accurate takes time.

Tyrem: I found something, also Jakobut...but the plans are not complete, they miss many small measurements. Finding them out takes me 12 hours a day at the moment.

But I am grateful for any help or links to measurements.

looks cool, any idea of the prices and the delays ?

Not yet, you guys are the first persons that hear about that project.
So dont consieder us being already sovereign when it comes to calculation and prices, but we are in the constructing and wood-working.

I have a long meeting on the 23īof december, I think after that I will know much more, but we try to be fair on prices.

As soon as I know prices you can order a Karate Champ.
Tempest will also be finished in the next week and ready to order soon than.

Next project seems to be the Track and Field as (of course) we prefer the suggested cabinets.

I read some of Scr33nīs threads, he is a very good man.
What I always wonder, he asks for measurements, but I never saw replies to that questions, do the members send him the measurements per PM???

We will look if one of the collectors we know got a Track nīField. But getting Scr33nīs measurements would accelerate the project.

I am also looking for a Joust cocktail, that is one awesome cabinet I have to build and to own.

Tyrem and glstar:

At the moment we are just about to calculate the price. We do not offer something and say we ask for this and that, we calculate from our costs away as we want to have a reasonable pricing politics.

We need to find a good laminat source as this is just a much higher quality at the end.
Even if you paint MDF you would have to primer it first to keep the wood from sucking the paint in and show its texture.

Also, on laminate you are able use water to apply the artwork-foil, that avoids air bubbles and helps to move the foil in position.

We want to offer a perfect product.

glstar:

What exactly do you mean by "a full cabinet", a ready to run with PCB or PC installed?

I am very very busy with the Tempest CAD-file, but if you can get measurements and detail pictures of the cabinets you want I will start it contemporaneous and can show you first results in some days.

As for the renderings of the Karate Champ:

A member sent me an email if that are real pictures as it only looks like renderings.
They ARE renderings indeed, but this is not that usual google sketch up- stuff.

We construct the cabinets in CATIA, this is parametric CAD-software starting at 30 000€
The 3D-model is assembled by the individual parts and that CATIA-files rights interact with the CNC-Devices we use.

So if the 3D-model works, it works in reality, the CNC-device gives the parts out like a puzzle that fits together with 100% accuracy.
This is not what one could produce at home with jig saw, the cuts of our products are laser straight, the curves perfect and the joints are so exact that it looks like its a cast part.

I hope that gave some insight, but feel free to go for further questions, we try to answer as soon as possible.

Burgertime it is then!
When does this build start?  Wink

Yes Muerto  Wink Cool..... I'm looking for the pieces .... I'll open a new topic: http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=1269.0



I alos build replicas, I have a little help though since I am a 3D-Designer and the data does right import to any CNC-device which I also have.

I am also not far from you, I am from Vienna/Austria, I would be more than happy to help you to scratch custruct cabinets.
Also we can trade some plans, I have a complete step by step 3D-model of a Karate Champ.

A firend and me just started a business with it (the homepage isīnt online yet but in the next weeks), we want to satisfy the european market for original dedicated replicas. If you can help with measurements I maybe can arrange to get you some CNC-work for free.

I try to upload some pictures but the programming of that board sucks, I opened a new thread about it:

A friend and me (both arcade-freak) are just about to start a business with replicas of original dedicated arcade cabinets (the homepage is not online yet but within the next weeks).

We going to send all over the world but shipping will be the cheapest in Europe as we are from Austria.

Since my partner got a big company for the construction of prototypes we are able to perform any task.
His company works for all sorts of industries...for BMW for instance (currently for the upcomming I8).

Cabinets like Star Wars in the Cockpit-Version are on top of our to do list.

Feel free to make suggestions and orders of any cabinet you can think of and if we have enough orders or you pay the price we will take it into our database.

I start off with one of the first projects, a friend wanted to have a Karate Champ, here are the first impressions.

- Note, all of our cabinets will have improvements were the original sucks. The Karate Champ for example was a cab that stood on its sidepanels whats the reason that every Karate Champ I saw had terrible damaged sidepanels.
We not only avoid that, we also lay the T-Molding all around the sidepanel.

The front door and the 2 rear doors are requirements of the customer, the frames around the doors gives the cabinet awesome strenght, but we can do it without the front door and one big rear door on the backside.

No furniture is supposed to stay on the sidepanel as you will damage it if you transport it and if you have water on the floor.

Our wood-bar undercostructions is superior to that and gives the room to add casters to roll the cabinet for reassembling or cleaning.
Due to the added space under the cab nobody can see that the cab is on wheels as it only hoovers some millimeters above the ground.

Since the upload is a problem as always I used Photobucket to upload high-quality images (but the quality is not as it should be but contact me for better quality images and I will email you):

Sir, could you tell me what circa are the different radiuses of the side-panels are.

That would be very nice Smiley

I also made a manual
671  General Chat / Technical Area / Re: We plan a dedicated replica cab-site featuring plans and Solidworks animations on: November 25, 2013, 09:36:56 PM


More pictures....unfortunately the upload-space is very small
672  General Chat / Technical Area / Re: We plan a dedicated replica cab-site featuring plans and Solidworks animations on: November 25, 2013, 09:34:54 PM

I have spent already time to design cabinets.
I wouldīnt be intendet to ask for money for the plans. I would maybe do it like a trade system, either you upload measurements of an original dedicated cabinet or you doner.

In the attachment are some shots

Does it only looks like or is that the same cabinet like the Karate Champ???
674  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: ::RoadTrip + Project:: DAYTONA USA -> OutRun2 *Da Conversion* on: November 07, 2013, 11:07:24 PM







If the yellow button is not for sale anymore maybe someone can tell me where to buy it.
I restore a SEGA Hang-On and would need that button. I even found the button but the company want 28USD for it....
675  General Chat / Arcade Lifestyle / Re: ::RoadTrip + Project:: DAYTONA USA -> OutRun2 *Da Conversion* on: November 07, 2013, 10:53:43 PM
OK, the *bad* thing regarding the panel #2 is ... the condition of some buttons   Sad  arrow



Some of them are impossible to push... someone used a lighter or something, and use it on the buttons  Evil Ghost  arrow



Hopefully, I've founded two buttons *brand new* (and very expensive by the way  Sad) : the blue and the green.



The yellow one, on the previous picture is useless : it doesn't match with this button panel... it's a button for other SEGA games, like Space Harrier for example.

So I'm still looking for others buttons : the big rounded yellow, and the yellow square + red square. If you know where to buy them, please let me know  Wink  Kiss



You can sell the yellow pushbutton to me...I restore a SEGA Hang-On
