This is a bit of mixed media, but I decided to make a custom cabinet for the old “Splatterhouse” arcade game from the late 1980’s just in time for Halloween.
I used the Form1 for parts of the control panel-- in particular I took a 3D data set for a human femur, scaled it down, hollowed it and printed it to make a master mold out of silicone. From there, I poured urethane plastic to co-mold it with the metal shaft used on the arcade joystick. The control panel is made with flexible urethane foam rubber poured into another silicone mold made from a clay sculpture. I used the Form1 to print extruded 3D text (made in Blender) to label the buttons on the control panel.
Anyway, there’s a lot more to the project, but I thought some of you would get a kick out of the slightly different application for the Form1.
Here’s a video of it in action too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrPT36HsGH4
I put together a quick-n-dirty webpage with construction details on the whole project in case anyone is interested: http://www.multigame.com/splatterhouse.html
