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.
