Kristian’s Stargate project

I have a made a “working” Stargate model from the SG1 TV-show. It spins, the chevrons move and lights up and when a correct address is dialed, the wormhole is established. The wormhole is an infinity mirror effect. The gate is controlled with a DHD. You can check out the video presentation of the Stargate in action here:

I like 3d printing, electronics, programming and making stuff. I also enjoy the Stargate TV-series and decided to make a “working” model of the gate as seen in the TV-show.

This was a challenging and fun project and I had to learn a lot of new stuff. This has been a very time consuming project. There are a few variations of Stargates used in the show and I chose to make the original one from the SG1 series. There are also several logical “glitches” in the technical workings of the gate as seen in the TV show and it even behaves differently in different episodes . I have made it work as best I can while staying as true as possible to the feeling and essence of the TV-Show.


  • A fully interactive working Stargate, complete with a DHD (Dial Home Device).
  • The Stargate ring spins and places the dialed symbol on the correct chevron as the traveler is inputting the address by using the DHD.
  • All 7 chevrons moves and lights up when engaged.
  • The Stargate can dial any milky-way address used in the show.
  • When a correct address is input using the DHD, the wormhole is established.
  • The wormhole effect consists of a animated infinity mirror of 122 LED’s.
  • Complete with sound effects from the TV Show.
  • When the wormhole stays open, selected random audio clips from the TV-Show is played.
  • As in the TV-Show the wormhole can stay open for 38 minutes. When the time limit is reached, a random quote from the show where the time limit is mentioned is played and the wormhole disengages.
  • The Stargate itself is about 39 cm in diameter.

    1. Hi Daniel,
      You have not missed it. The gate is still in production, currently in the painting process. It will be a while untill it’s fully ready. You’ll get an email when we get there.

    Hello, I’m a bird, And I saw your video about your StarGate. First of all, I tell you and I give you all my respect for the result of your work, frankly, it is very pretty and clean. And finally and (seriously), I will be interested in buying two models from you. I currently live in France.

    And I ve a question ? Two questions ?

    Is there an “Atlantis” version? If not ? Would it be possible to have two Atlantis versions? Would it be possible to have the prize too? (Normal and Atlantis version) Sincerely and thank you for your creativity and courage for this project.

    I wait your answer in my email.

    Thank to you.

    Se houver interesse em vender, gostaria de encomendar um; para o Brasil

    If you going to sell, I’d like onde… To came tô Brazil

  4. Did you considered using an addressable RGB LED Strips for the chevrons?
    Might save you a lot of wires going to the controller, plus you get the bonus of changing the color as you like.

    Great Work!

  5. This could easily be worth up to one grand (for hard core fans at least).

    I might suggest making multiple versions for various markets.

  7. Im very impressed. Please mass produce this or develop a kit that contains everything so it can be put together by the customer. I think every stargate fan would get one.
