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. The page below is also offering your stargate using your video and text. I’m guessing they are not an “working directly with” you as an authorised manufacturer.

    Buyer beware.

  2. This site is also selling your work and is using the pictures you shared of the project in their listing.

  3. Stay away from UNICOTOK. Total Ripoff. Used this guys pics/vids then sent a piece of crap plastic that has only still parts and barely lights up.

  4. Might I suggest working with a manufacturer to get this mass produced. I’m absolutely positive you could sell 10’s of thousands of your stargates.

  5. Hello, I run a growing YouTube channel currently at 208 and would love to promote your setup if you would be open to sending me one. I’m a huge stargate fan and would love to work with you.

  6. Take all our money!!!!
    maybe a little bigger would look cooler and easier to produce. but defently get some one on to making these. and retire on your new wealth.

  7. I have a friend who got me into stargate and I’m so glad she did. Her favorite show is Atlantis and I literally just now while scrolling on facebook found this place. I would love to get my friend an Atlantis gate. I would gladly pay for parts, shipping and a labor fee. Cannot wait to get the chance to get one.

  8. Bonjour,

    Toute mes félicitations pour cet réalisation tout simplement magnifique de la porte des étoiles, c’est un travail fabuleux qui me plaît beaucoup !

    J’ai découvert votre projet grâce à une publicité frauduleuse, utilisant les images et vidéos de votre projet, pour vendre leurs produits de contrefaçon, qui n’égale en aucun cas votre réalisation !
    Je ne possède pas d’imprimante 3d malheureusement à se jour, mais le jour où j’en posséderai une, je viendrai acheter vos fichiers et pcb pour le DHD, afin d’avoir ma propre porte des étoiles.

    You should make more because I would also like to buy one. Just tell me the price and you got it.

  10. Id very much like to buy one of these for my husband. We had a cake made featuring a stargate and some random army men walking towards the stargate cake for our wedding.

    I dont have a 3D printer so Id be willing to pay for shipping
