Arcade 1up - Dig Dug Volcano buttons mod
« on: December 01, 2020, 11:43:23 am »
I'm having a friend add volcano buttons to the dig dug countercade.

Here's the progress:
=================================
A recent project for a friend in the A1Up community: 3D-printable adapter for Atari "Volcano"-type power switches.

I'm no 3D printing expert, but I put this together for a friend here in the A1Up community. Printed in black PETG, it's flexible enough to squeeze the "tabs" through the hole, but stiff enough to prevent it from easily popping out. You could put a dab of hot glue across the "tabs" to keep it firmly in place. Download the STL here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1UMUOr1xPkI5CTbJqYggzzoLPjvHle1dX/view. These reproduction switches were used: https://www.arcadeshop.com/i/1539/atari-lighted-start-push-button.htm

Not shown is wiring up power to the LEDs. All A1Up control panel circuit boards have 5V, and these draw a minimal amount of current. Use a multimeter to find the appropriate pins for 5V and ground, and solder wires to them. (Or get 5V from elsewhere if you're using a Pi, Pandora's Box, etc.)









once i get it, i can show more pictures, details, etc.

You would be better served by using the short ones as they would look not so out of place...They sell aluminium ones on E/pay.

yes, i could have gotten silver ones, or shorter black ones.

at the time, i didn't know what would fit, and my friend made the 3d adapters.

so maybe i'll go with shorter black next time.

thanks.

I'll bet ABS vapor smoothed would look sharp also.

Arcadeshop has much better prices.
Arcadeshop also carries the three types of volcano cone bezels:
- Tall plastic: http://www.arcadeshop.com/i/568/atari-tall-black-button-cone.htm
- Short black: http://www.arcadeshop.com/i/1135/atari-short-black-button-cone.htm
- Short silver/aluminum: http://www.arcadeshop.com/i/566/atari-short-aluminum-button-cone.htm
