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 dialled, the wormhole is established. The wormhole is an infinity mirror effect. The stargate is controlled with a DHD. You can check out the video presentation of the Stargate in action here:

Here is a video showing one Stargate dialing another Stargate

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 stargate 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.

Features

  • A fully interactive working Stargate complete with a DHD (Dial Home Device).
  • The Stargate ring spins and places the dialled symbol on the correct chevron as the traveller is inputting the address by using the DHD.
  • All 7 chevrons move and lights up when engaged.
  • The Stargate can dial any milky-way address used in the show.
  • NEW: The stargate can now dial other stargates over the Internet, and receive incoming wormholes from other stargates on the Internet.
  • 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.
  • Do not dial the black hole.
  • The Stargate itself is about 39 cm in diameter.

    I’m thinking of attempting a build. I’ve got no experience with 3D printing and don’t currently own one. Does anybody know the if it would be possible and the cost to have one of those 3D printing services print up all the parts vs buying a printer like the Prusa i3 mk3 and learning to print them myself. I’m somewhat interested in doing more 3D printing as a hobby on other projects, but if a service could print the parts for much less I might just go that route and consider a printer purchase down the line. Or would Kristian not want his 3D files sent off to a service for printing?

  2. Has anyone actually got a package from the scam and what did u get. Si ce this so called Karen won’t give my money back and keeps saying thank u for buying and other shit. She even did not cancel my order like 3 weeks of me asking

  3. Listen people.
    This product is legit. They are being built privately and they do function as shown.
    However, there is no factory, no sales people, no advertisements, etc. Those claiming so are all scam artists linking their scam to this place. No different than if I wanted to sell the Brooklyn Bridge, I’d show pictures of it.
    Do I have one? No. I can’t afford one. I figured the price would be high, but I had no idea it would be $7000 (or more) for this, watching the auction of the one that has been specifically built for ‘sale’.
    This means that if I want one, I will have to get the files and instructions and build my own.
    Advice.
    If you’ve bought or paid for this product through some advertisement, its a scam, get your money back asap. This guy and his site are not to blame for what criminals are doing to you and deflecting their crime here.
    Those of you that have used the paypal, and other electronic means of communication and payment are protected by the laws of the united states. which means, when you ask for your money back through whomever transferred it, ask them to pursue charges on whomever is accepting the money. Put the criminals behind bars because Wire Fraud is a felony that they love to enforce and dole out years of prison time for.

  4. I got scammed as well. They keep on replying to my messages saying its processing or its shipped but nothing. It’s been over a month

    1. Yes ive been talking with this Karen who scammed me and everytime she says something to stall me I get up at her for scamjng not just me but many others. She should be held for this

    2. I had the same problem, I contacted them again yesterday and accused them of scamming me and demanded my money back. All of a sudden they tell me my order is lost and would I like to cancel and get a refund? LOL so now I wait to see if they actually do refund me…..

  5. Here’s another message they just sent me. Your order factory has already produced. hope you can keep it. when you receive it any problem you can e-mail me. Our products are OEM, the quality is good

  6. i bought this from a fraudster. paid with paypal and already switched on the buyer protection. today this karen offered me a compensation of 9 dollars. i paid almost 90 dollars
