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.


  • 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.

A lot of people are asking if they can buy a Stargate as seen on this site. More information about this here: Buy a complete Stargate?

  1. Next step, a keyboard on the DHD so you can type messages from one stargate to another that has been dialed.

    I’m in England and would love one of these! again I have just seen your pictures and videos on an add on Facebook being sold for $59 witch is £43. I was tempted to order one but I thought I’d research it first. That’s when I found your project. I think it’s wrong that Facebook don’t check for scammers advertising. I am a HUGE Stargate fan and would definitely buy one of yours!

  3. I just happened to come across this and it is absolutely amazing! I literally have tears in my eyes because it brings back so many good memories of watching this show with my husband, he was the one that got me hooked on Stargate and he has passed away so this is just something that when I look at it I am feeling so many different emotions! Great, great job! Thank you for sharing this, it truly is amazing work!

  4. Anyone looking for this online, please beware that there are some sites out there using these pictures to sell a knock off product. I bought one after randomly seeing it online, and didn’t do enough research to realize what it was. The site I got it from was ant-us dot com. Do not buy this from random sites you see it these pictures on.

  5. By the way, these scam artists have apparently stolen some of your pictures to sell some knockoff fantasy mirror.

  6. Congratulations on an excellent job. A suggestion if I may, an LCD screen at the end of the tunnel, a camera and an audio path for communication via the internet. Each user with symbols on the platform to open communication.

  7. For those of that don’t have access to printer ( like m) how may we obtain parts please.
    Thank you. 🙂

  8. Masterfully done. Will this be available for whoever is interested?
    I’m definitely interested.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

  9. I love this project. Great work and nice website. I hope to build one someday.
    Are you aware of this company called Helkay using your photos and videos to offer a stargate product?

    I suspect this is a scam, and obviously I doubt they are selling your gate, but I thought I would let you know about it.
    Best regards,

  10. Have you considered using circular LCD panels for the puddle? There are a great many available.

  11. Are you planning to build anymore? If so, would you consider making a set to purchase? I’d be very interested in that.

  12. IT Is surprise for me, to see perfect Stargates fully functional, even interactive. I love SG series. Nice work! Have a good day.
