Introduction: Iron Man Arc Reactor Prop

Picture of Iron Man Arc Reactor Prop

Here is a slide show of my second arc reactor I made. I started making it before I thought to make it an ible so I just made a slide show, if you have questions on the build please ask me. Also, this is my own work, I did not copy someone elses.

Looks great but where did you get the materials or did you make them yourself I've been wanting to make one so I've been looking at how other people make them but they have machines that make the parts for them

really realistic i would just use white or blue plastic and white or blue leds but how did you make that ring. like the one filled with holes. like that thing inner the hot glue stick ring.

This arc if I'm not mistaken is made from chopped candles transparent-white wages waiting for a reply thanks

sorry I took so long to reply but the arc is made of a big hot glue stick chopped up, i did try to use wax but couldnt get to stay in

what if you didn`t have a springy thingy, could you wrap copper wire around a nail?

I am running into trouble with the wiring of the LEDs. Do you have any layouts or patterns for the lighting array?

looks pretty good the only problem is that you've got wierd yellow lights instead of white or blue 4 stars :)

Emsaid (author)ryahe2010-10-08

ryahe (author)Emsaid2010-10-08
