Plecter Labs / FYI on Plector Labs
« Last post by ViperR on July 03, 2022, 04:19:40 PM »
Hey all,
 Plector Labs has discontinued their economy simple Pico Crumble Light & Dark sound boards. I inquired about getting those for some of my economy builds for young kids I build and upgrade on their crappy toy Disney stuff they buy on their trips.
  Bummer. These were inexpensive and made a big difference in making the Savi's & Dok Andor's toys much better. Not the "build your own" $25 ones. Savi's & Dok's ones.
  Confirmed this with Erv.

Forum Gallery / Korbanth MPP 2.0
« Last post by Cimmerian on July 01, 2022, 05:34:22 PM »
Hello,

Finally finished my Korbanth MPP 2.0 w/ Proffie 1.5 purchased several years ago.
At the time having finished my Graflex 2.0 I made a decision to go 'full Jedi' and make my own soundboard and chassis, with the foolish intention of saving money on expensive sound cards (I burned a CF 7.5 at the time ) and Chassis from Shapeways.

So for the past few years I have delved into CAD , 3d printing electronics and programming almost obsessively on this bloody project. I got a prototype soundboard running on a breadboard with CF7 equivalent specs (based on the same hw). Made all my own drivers, everything but got burned out. Then Proffie and CFX came along and there was little point trying to keep up.

On the 3d side I leaned FreeCad, got fed up with it along the way due to slow refreshes when you have lots of variables. Eventually I settled on OpenSCAD as I liked the text based nature of 'coding' your models.
Worked on the Chassis on and off for a few years as I got burned out by that too. Eventually this year I vowed to finish it off!

What started as a 'I can do that!' and thinking I would save money eventually led me down a rabbit hole of buying 3 3d printers 2 FDM / 1 Resin , Rigol Oscilloscope, programmers , logic analysers countless hours learning all this xxx and learning openscad / c etc eventually. I wished I had just forked out the money and I would have had my nice sabers in hand long ago and moved on to other fun projects lol.  So props to Erv, Frederik, goth3d, shtok and all the other craftspeople - it takes a lot of dedication and skill to build this stuff. Maybe Ill resurrect my code someday just to complete the 'challenge' for myself.

Anyway here's my MPP and Chassis I designed and printed all at home. Im no designer but I like how it turned out. I tried to make the chassis have an OT / Vader feel hence the TIE markings and death star panels. Not too busy, just utilitarian looking. Heavy influence from slothfurnace's wonderful MPP . I liked the idea of the imperial insignia as I imagined that part as an imperial-supplied power source Vader had commissioned. Hope you like it!

It does. For like 2 years. The quick interaction guide will tell you pretty much everything

So didn’t even know my cfx saber had drag fx
But apparently it does,
Unless I’m doing something wrong what exactly is the gesture for it?

BTW, the TCSS hilt parts are very shiny from their factory. Didn't take much to eliminate any machining swirls. Then a good rub of Mothers on a cloth wheel to a mirror.
