Making a Working Ghostbusters Ghost Trap!

We’re super excited to reveal a project we’ve been working on for the past few months. Sean Charlesworth has designed and built a replica of the ghost trap prop from the original Ghostbusters films. This prop pulls the best features from the traps that appear in the films, using as many original found parts as possible and the rest 3D printed. It even has a working pedal to activate lights, sound, and smoke!

Download the files to print this trap yourself here:

Thanks to Dremel for providing the 3D printer and tools for us to build this project! Learn more about the Dremel 3D Idea Builder at

  • As a huge Ghost-Head I’m completely blown away by this! The level of detail is absolutely amazing and the functionality is so fantastic that I don’t even know what to say! I’ve seen many different ghost traps built by fans who are serious cosplayers but I’ve never seen a trap look exactly like the props used in the films that has all of the working bells and whistles! You have gone above and beyond what any Ghostbusters fan would ever want out of a working ghost trap! I might even bite the bullet and buy a high end 3D printer just so I can download the files needed in order to build my very own ghost trap! The 6 year old in me who saw Ghostbusters in theaters is crying out for me to make one of these for my collection! Thank you so much for sharing this video and I look forward to seeing the in-depth explanatory video on the mechanics of these ghost traps! Again, excellent job!👏🏻

  • So do you sell a finished version of the trap?

  • Cool, but anticlimactic after the loud, dramatic trap sequences in the movie.

  • That is truly awesome.

    Since the Foster connectors are meant to carry air, couldn't you have made the whole thing pneumatically activated?

    I'm thinking, put a bellows in the pedal, put some kind of diaphragm in the trap. The diaphragm would activate a small momentary switch like a PC reset button, that would activate the electronics in the trap.

    Also, does the ghost cartridge come out?

  • Shame they wasted all that time on making a working foot pedal. When they could have used air powered switch like many sewing machines already use. Derp.
