well today i will be showing you my design for the skyhook from bioshock infinite. I was bored during my 4 days off of work and started playing my bioshock and decided i should make a skyhook. so as a graphic designer i drew up a vector of the design and went to work (after hours) then used the laser engraver that i have access to. I then cut it out of 5/8th inch acrylic. I will be providing a pdf template so you can make it out of foam board or cardboard or what ever you want.
NOTE: i couldnt figure out the best way to make the arm part of it so i just excluded it from this build
♦ 3/8th inch acrylic sheets (10x9 18x10 16x12) ♦ laser engraver ♦ super glue (3 or 4 tubes seamed to work as well as the actual acrylic solvent ) ♦ a sander with 60 grit paper (for paint prep) ♦ spray paint (black and gray) ♦ rub n' buff (i got a variety pack and used colors i liked) ♦ Bobby pins (used as cotter pins for the spinning parts) ♦ wire cutters ♦ dry erase marker
