That's what the Factory Accessories Mold #331 is for. It has two kinds of walls, the concrete Jersey barrier and also a steel wall. These would not be glued to the floor but are sturdy and heavy enough that they won't be knocked around easily. I haven't painted mine yet because I'm still trying to decide on what colors to use.
The lasers would mount onto either of these (lasers are also on mold #331). The round light on the top will be easy to see where a laser is when setting on top of either of these walls.
For all of my tiles, I'm not gluing them together. I'm also using a 1/16" square of self-stick foam on the bottom of each piece so they don't slide around on the table. This also gives me a lot of freedom. I can put and rearrange tiles any way I want for the next game. My boards don't even have to be square. They can be "L" shaped or any shape I want them to be.
I have to say that Making these in separate pieces was a good idea, especially when making hundreds of floor tiles. I can get a really clean paint job without having to work very hard.
For all of these shown, the pieces were painted separately and then glued together after painting and ink washing for a really clean look. The canvas was all painted dark gray and dry-brushed with a medium gray. Doing a good job on the canvas was the hardest part of the whole painting process. Everything else was super easy. The rollers were spray painted with hammered copper and washed with a mix of shoe polish, future and water. The arrows were spray painted as well.
The concrete tiles were plain white dental stone with the same wash (shoe polish, future, water) only with less shoe polish. The brush strokes help make the tiles not quite so plain.
Express conveyors had their rollers spray painted with nickel paint and blue arrows.
The double arrows have gold rollers. The turning gears have a spray painted hammered copper base (with the arrow protected with tape) and the gears are black spray paint dry brushed with chain mail (GW paint).
To me, the hardest part of the whole process is to decide on what colors I think will look good. When it comes to 3D stuff, I just have trouble picturing in color, so I have to do several tests (and waste several castings) to see what I think.
Well, I still have a lot of work to do. I'm hoping to get this finished and the web page written before Gencon in August.

Here are a couple more images.
These could be used for a teleporter, maglock, randomizer, standing door and trap door.

That old chair in the corner has my name written all over it.
