Tony Stark was able to build this in a cave! With a box of scraps!

it's more of tony stark "building" it while a large fabrication company work out how to make it and deliver it to the set while a team of graphic artists practice their video editing skills

How do you make the ring light up? Please right back. (mineralman.larson@hotmail.com)

He most likely used SMD/SMT LEDs. It's what I used for mine.
They're basically flattened LEDs that have a wide output of light. You can buy them fairly cheap online, but I've not seen them in stores. They generally come as a light strip, but it is possible to buy them as pieces.

Good luck & happy making :)

Nice reactor! How did you make it look like it was in your chest?

author
willrandship (author)applecake2011-02-10

I think it is just sitting on his chest, possibly taped there.

That, or he has missle fragments stuck in his heart :P

I used a resin jewelry mold. It was already the right size and shape. I filled it about halfway with resin and put the LEDs in it partway and let it cure. If that's still too difficult or expensive, you might want to try cutting out pieces of plastic packaging and forming them into a ring or something.

How did you make the light ring? Great project. This is one of the best looking arc reactors on instructables.

author
Kyling Zhang (author)hjfast2010-06-28

Thanks for your praise!I'm sorry I forget post this step ,the light ring is made of Plexiglass.I cut the plexiglass into rings and embed a lot of LEDs in it.I will post this step in my next ARC REACTOR project:)I cut the head fo LEDs to reduce the height.

author
beehard44 (author)Kyling Zhang2010-10-23

yeah i saw the light ring build in this website

author
ryotiu (author)2010-10-10

i was wondering if theres a substitude for making the ring instead of using the patio ring or ur custom ring. What else can i use? Plz i've been thinking of this for awhile since the movie was out thank you

I have a second arc reactor posted on the instructables, and there i illustrated how to make the light ring in greater detail. you can check it.

how do you made the "light ring"?

author
Kyling Zhang (author)gustavossf2010-06-30

see my second reactor, it tells you the detailes.

PKM (author)2010-06-28

Your english is ok, I can easily understand everything you wrote.  The only suggestion I would make is that you should leave a space after commas, periods and other punctuation, because it makes reading easier.  Compare

Hi,Instructables!This is my arc reactor,I will show you how to build one.

and

Hi, Instructables!  This is my arc reactor, I will show you how to build one.

That's a very small suggestion though.  Love the arc reactor, I'd like to see how you built the light ring too.

Thank you very much for your help! I'm a highschool student, I'm still learning English. Your help enhances my learning, thanks again! I tried to upload the picture which shows how I make the light ring, but the picture is unable to be uploaded, for the connecting speed is too slow. I have to go to bed, tomorrow I have to rise early for school. I will do it again tomorrow.

The pictures are how I made the light ring. hope you can understand what i mean. http://hiphotos.baidu.com/%D6%A5%BC%D3%B8%E7%B6%A9%CA%E9%BB%FA/pic/item/1a28b0222109bf9a4623e8a5.jpg http://hiphotos.baidu.com/%D6%A5%BC%D3%B8%E7%B6%A9%CA%E9%BB%FA/pic/item/536b6e19da87287b43a9ada5.jpg

sorry, I can not upload the image into the comment space, if you want the detailed pictures showing you how to make the light ring, please give me your email adress, i can send them to you. thanks!

author
PKM (author)Kyling Zhang2010-06-29

That's ok- I got the images from the addresses you posted. If you want to put images in comments, you can add them from your image library with the "add images" button and they will appear at the bottom of your comment (like this globe). If you haven't uploaded the image you will have to do that first so it will appear in your image library.

If you have the Rich Editor button you can use that to make links, like this:
Trim LEDs
Assemble ring

If neither of those work, a URL shortening service like bit.ly will help you make short links that you can easily put in comments.  Hope all of this helps!

author
darknessfalls (author)2010-06-29

Hi! i would just like to say a few things 1) your english is better than you give credit to (i know several americans who speak english much worse) 2) THIS IS THE BEST REACTOR I HAVE EVER SEEN ON INSTRUCTABLES! you said you would post the light ring in your next reactor instructions, when can i expect that because i really want to try and make a reactor as good as yours Regards -DF

bombmaker2 (author)2010-06-27

Cool. This may be the best arc reactor I've seen on Instructables. The only problem I see is that in the movie, the stand has the inscription in two shorter lines.

author
Kyling Zhang (author)bombmaker22010-06-28

THANKS! MY equipments is limitde so I can't make the reactor exactly the same as the movie,what a pity...T-T
