So with the imminent release or the third instalment of the iron man movies i decided i would give the arc featured in the trailers and posters a go.
The Arc i have made is made and designed is based wholly on the one shot, so i have no idea on how deep the arc is, ive used my past builds on the other arcs to guess the levels and design of this arc.
So here goes :)
Step 1: Tools and Materials.
- sand paper
- knives (scalpel, exacto, craft)
- rulers (any straight edge)
- 3mm perspex
- 2mm perspex
- thin card (0.7mm i don't know the gsm)
- solvent glue.
- spray paint.
Step 2: Research, Planning and Drawing Up Plans.
what i like about this design is that it moves away from the Vibranium triangle from the second film. i love the round designs.
I did some sketches of how i thought the layering would work to get how thick the arc would be.
once i had worked out the layers i drew up some illustrator plans.
Step 3: Cutting the Parts.
Step 4: Assembling the Cut Parts
the rear ring assembly.
the arc ring magnets.
the oval ring assembly.
Step 5: Painting the Parts.
The main body and the ring magnets are silver.
The front bezel and the parts the go on top of the oval ring are black.
The oval ring and hexagon mesh (which was cut from the thin card.)
The rear ring assembly was painted gold.
Step 6: Oval Ring Assembly.
I glued the hexagon mesh to the rear of the oval ring.
After cutting out the parts i kept the waste of the parts that sit on top of the oval ring as it would help locate the parts on the oval ring.
once the glue for the first two parts had dried i turned it over and attached the gold rear ring assembly to the back of the oval ring.
Step 7: Main Arc Ring.
Once the glue dried i turned it over and glued on the back plates of each magnets.
