After following countspatulas 3d files, and making the metal sides myself from 0.8mm thick aluminium, this is where I'm at.

The pedal needs a bit of paint work still, but it is winter and cold outside, and I ran out of black paint just before Christmas =p

Instead of running a wire through the hose and modifying the connectors, I have simply added a small remote control, located in the right box, that is triggered when I press the pedal. Inside the trap will be the receiver and other electronics, just wanting for smaller sprockets..

This will be fully automated as well =)

Not very far along one mine, but I finally got enough parts to start test fittings. Nothing here is held together by screws yet, just sorta leaning together.

Although I may have to replace the gold parts. I work at the local library and used the 3d printer there to make this. Since I was gonna putty, sand, and paint most of the parts anyway, so I just used what was left over from other patrons project. The red and green parts turned out OK, but the gold parts have been cracking when doing test assembly. So a slight set back there.

I have to say this trap kit looks amazing. I started printing some parts over the weekend. I was curious about the handle and handle frame. The chart says to use increased infill. I normally print with 20%. I'm just curious as to what others have used. Would 50% be enough or should I go even higher.

Thanks,
Adam

Thanks for the advice. I will post pictures when I have all the parts printed.

I just finished the guides for the Door Mechanism and Smoke Pump and putting kits together. I am about halfway through the Electronics Guide which I will sell at a modest fee. I will be releasing the Door and Smoke Guides free and they do include a parts list. They will also be integrated into the Electronics Guide along with the Deluxe Trap Guide that has been tweaked to go along with electronics install.

I will most likely be releasing the Door and Smoke Guides within a week as well as the kits (depends on when rest of the parts arrive). While the door and smoke mechs can be assembled and fitted before the electronics, full integration won't be covered until Electronics Guide is done - just something to keep in mind. But with the standalone guides and the modular nature, you should be able to make them work with your own custom electronics too.
