I finally made the dive, I’ve been saving spare parts for about 5-6 years and I happened to have a lot of free time on my hands, because I probably wont be traveling anytime soon! Enjoy some photos of the build! Thanks to all of the people that create guides, tables, videos and more because I COULDN’T of done this without you!
Pinball FX3 Spiderman, probably my favorite table they have released.
Doesnt run well on a Steam link, but it was just a test til I finished building the PC
Temporary til the flipper switches are in, figuring out how to get backglasses to work
Plunger and flippers are in, PinUp running, got some Philips Hue lightstrips on clearance as undercab lighting
Hoping to finish the backbox and stain the wood in the upcoming months, but right now I am just enjoying the content that this community is creating. THANK YOU!

PS. The Philips Hue Sync software works really well for the cab! I haven’t had much luck on the DOF code to work with it yet, but I haven’t given up

Love to see a cab build come together. It makes me sad because I miss the thrill of building my own

I have NO CLUE what I am doing, so thanks for all of the guides. I can’t wait to get some lighting and feedback devices. The wiring scares me a bit, but I’ll take my time with it.

For wiring take the time. Its not that difficult, if you made a scheme of the wiring what you want to accomplish.
First determ what you want to wire and use different colors of wires. Start for example with buttons and finish that.
Than do the next. The lights in the buttons for example.
After that do your toys. That was my approach, and I didn’t get in a spaghetti wire mess.
I hope you have a lot of wires length ordered !

What a difference staining makes!

That looks really good. I know everyone doesn’t have the space or equipment available, but everyone has the ability to build their own cab. And, you appreciate things more when you do it yourself rather than just buying one.

Also love the proportions of the back box and playfield, it looks like a pinball game. I sometimes cringe when I see people cabs with backglass screens that are waaaaaay too small

Like the stain. And cupholder! You should give thought now to extra buttons for magnasave. Even if never used for that, they are indispensable for making adjustments in camera/light mode. Some tables have options like lighting that also use them.

More buttons are in the plan! I’m currently using a stream deck to fill in the gaps. Saving up now for Year 2 upgrades.

Stream decks are super handy. I have a six button mounted on the side. I figured you had it under control. …you have a real tilt bob right?
