Introduction: Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis ZPM Prop Replica

Hello my name is Phillip I am the owner of Actiprops. This is the Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis ZPM prop replica That I made. I plan on adding a guide for the build soon, but I thought I would go ahead and add this for all to see. I am new to instructables, so Still learning the ends and outs.  This build started like many with decent research! I had access to detailed measurements of the screen used ZPM hero. 

This ZPM started with a styrene and wood base. After several smoothing sessions I sculpted the fine points with Apoxie Sculpt. The lines are made with apoxie sculpt.  I molded the master with Smooth-on products the new "Rebound 40".  I then added the 1/4 inch clay lining for uniform thickness. After that I molded the other side (so I could make hollow cast) The resin was also from Smooth-on resin with so-strong tint.  Both molds are designed to fit in my smooth-on pressure casting pot. This allows me to make bubble free castings. Thats important because of the lights. If I didn't pressurize them wow it would look horrible.

But here you go. I will be posting more detailed in depth instructables.  In the mean time look for us on facebook and twitter!

    Cheers Fro Aust. Bob

    I have been trying to make a ZPM for over a year now, but keep running into problems. I would love to see the detailsof how you made this.

    I can't wait to see the prints. Are you selling these?

    someone make me one please, im horrible at this.

    Looks pretty close, but I think the color is slightly off. It needs to have more of an amber cast to it, and possibly not so uniform in color, but pretty danged close.

    Looking forward to seeing the instructable, these would make very nice lamps!
