My attempt at a more authentic replica of the iron man arc reactor.
started with copper, but it became too flimsy... so i tried a thicker piece of aluminum instead
just punched a piece of aluminum with a punch press, then drilled and filled all the oval holes by hand, then made all the other little parts by hand
made the copper brackets using an etching machine. Then got a scrap pcb, cut it into a circle and hot glued some components onto it.
I used some magnet wire to hold it all together at first before i glued it all up.
Chose to go with White LEDs this time.
oh, I still have to do the wires connecting the coils. . . .
--The only part that was manufactured by an actual program and machine were these two bracket pieces. The cost to make these outside for the average ...

What are the materials used for the arc reactor and the costs of it?
This is awesome. If you have blueprints that you could send me that would be awesome.
