    OK, last one for a while, I am having lots of fun with Fusion 360.  This is a Gottlieb ball gate bracket that mounts to the playfield.  It came in a left and right version which are basically the same, just have the flap loaded the opposite direction.  This uses the same flap as the other gottlieb gate that mounts to the top of the apron, just rotate it whatever direction you desire for a left or right gate.  Made off measurements from real one, as close as I could make it.

    SEE INSTALLATION NOTES, PLEASE.

    Bracket and Flap size at 100,100,100.  Gate bracket set at Z of 0, flap a tad lower on this one at a Z of 73.  place and rotate as needed, center the flap origin on the pin in the gate bracket.  Same deal as with the other gate it will only open about 45 degrees before hitting the bracket so you will want to have your animation script like:

    PrimGate.rotx=Gate.currentangle*.5

    as the vp gates will open to 90.  These gates also don't flop around much at all so using the gate physics I set damping at 0.85 and gravity at 2 for a reasonable approximation.

    1.0 initial release

      I should clarify on the flap, use objrotz to rotate to right orientation and rotx to animate so everything works right.

      Looks great. Any idea of the date range that these were used?

      not really.  I don’t know of them in em or system 1 (but I don’t know them all), but definitely throughout the system 80, 80a and 80b stuff.  system 3 may have them, but they mostly did other stuff.
