Hey guys, today I have made a Lego Technic Spider-Man Web Shooter that actually fires web!
To follow the instructions just look at the pictures and read the notes.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Pieces You Will Need
These are all the pieces you need. The color of your pieces doesn't matter one bit as long as they are the same type of piece. (except for the tan 1x3 connectors these are made to have less friction with other pieces)
Step 2: Base of the Shooter
For the shooter to properly attach to your wrist, the rubber band in front needs to be completely wrapped around both of the 1x15s as pictured above.
Step 10: Mechanism Setup
Step 13: Pressure Plate
Step 16: Rubber Band Pegs
When the rubber band is around your wrist, it should be in front of the pegs so that it doesn't handicap the mechanism.
Step 18: Projectile Holder
This is on the end of the 1x15.
Step 22: Web Spool (Optional)
Make sure your thread is over 3 feet. (it doesn't have to be white)
When the thread is laid over a hole, the 1x3 pegs are used to stuff it in with them.
Step 28: Mounting
Step 29: Projectile
This projectile should be attached on the end opposite of the spool.
Step 32: Spool Setup
Step 34: Detensioning
The 1x2 technic piece centered in the first picture is a kind of kickstand. The thread needs to be loose for firing, the "kickstand" is very important to the firing of the shooter. The stand should be facing towards the technic piece underneath it when you are winding the thread on. After you are done with putting the thread on, flip the stand around so that the thread on the spool becomes loose. The stand should be facing forward so that the thread doesn't get caught on it. The bottom of the spool should be facing at a slightly steeper angle than the base of the shooter for the best firing results.
Step 35: Firing Preparation
The projectile sits in the crook of the L shaped technic piece. (make sure the black axle attached to the tip of the throwing arm is beneath the 1x15)
Put the second rubber band on your right or left wrist, then attach the shooter onto your wrist and use the second rubber band to attach the back of the shooter to your wrist.
Step 41: Mounted!
Step 42: Have Fun!
I'm sorry if you have a hard time figuring out how to use the shooter. There is only so much that I can explain in writing and pictures.
Hope you enjoy!
