Introduction: Endgame Arc Reactor
So I decided to 3D print the nano-housing unit from Marvel's Infinity War and Endgame, I also wanted to test my circuit building/ solder skills as well as I think that it would be a cool halloween prop. Always looking for ways to improve so feel free comment
Printed on the Anet A8
All materials can be purchased on Amazon.
Leds, 3 Blue, 1 One
push button switch
CR-2032 3v Lithium battery
Cr 2032 connectors
Step 1: THE PRINT
You can download the 3d print from Thingiverse
you can use any color PLA/ABS I use Hatchbox RED PLA and painted the Reactor gray.
The print isn't complicated I printed all the parts within two days on the Anet A8
- .2 mm walls- this will ensure the sturdiness of the print
Step 2: Clear Display
I ordered translucent PLA from Amazon- in the print they have all the parts needed.
I printed 2 clear pieces to diffuse the led's better, you can use the translucent blue as well.
ALSO- I used a file to sand down the edges for a better fit in side the face plate.
Filing is easier then sanding
Step 3: Electronics
I'm sure that I could have done this better
I bought a few push lights, disassembled them and I was going to wire them up in series, but I was having issues so I pulled it all apart and redid the work
What I did
1. Blue LED x3- find the place where you think the led will look the best, basically right, left and bottom.
2. Clear LED x1- center- find placement
I used electrical tape to hold them in place while I worked on them.
So--- Power (pos) to Push Button
Push button to the positive side to the LED
LED to a 220k Resistor
Negative back to battery
Step 4: Paint & Putting That Pieces Together
Rust o elum 2x coverage primer
I hit each individual piece before I bonded everything together.
to keep everything thing together I used gorilla 2 sided tape, this allows me to pull the sections apart if need be, like if I need to change the batteries, electronics go bad
Step 5: WEAR AND ENJOY
I glued to the back plate with gorilla glue two (2) neodymium magnets to the back plate and 2 inside the electronics housing. and then put EVA foam to the opposite side for comfort
then just put the pieces between a shirt and enjoy
