A dedicated Stargate fan 3D printed a full-on, life-size stargate from the popular show.
This amazing feat of 3D printing took Belgium’s Musee royal de Mariemont over 1,000 hours to build.
To pull it off, the team 3D-printed more than 2,000 parts, had to conduct 10,000 cuttings and spent 1,000 man-hours putting the entire rig together. They also did all this working from TV and movie images for reference, with no legit plans to follow. The finished product is positively stunning, and essentially looks like it’s just waiting for someone to start spinning it and locking in chevrons.
Check out the making-of video below, and be jealous. Be very, very jealous.
