  • Here are newly modeled "smooth" posts used throughout the 50s and 60s by all the major manufacturers. These were modeled with actual posts in hand and should be a good baseline for positioning other playfield elements.

    The 1" posts are typically freestanding or sit beneath the plastics where there isn't a fastener through the plastic. The 1 1/8"(ish) posts are typically placed beneath the plastics when fastened through the plastic or used beneath gate or spinner brackets.

    The included textures give some ambient occlusion without being specific to where the post is placed. To create additional colors set the white version's blend mode to multiply over a solid color in your preferred graphic editor.

    The post materials in the demo table are set up to give the look of slight subsurface scattering when near GI lights.

    The demo table also has single and stretched rubber bands taken from real-world outer diameter measurements. I highly recommend using these in conjunction with the posts.

    Use the included textures and materials for best results. They shouldn't need any scaling. If something doesn't fit double check the veracity of your art first.

      For reference these are the taller ones:

      You can find these on just about every game through the 60s.
