Summary

One-sided "Milky Way" style Stargate, including gate symbols (unlike other Stargate things currently available).
Now includes 'offworld' staircase/platform to be printed separately.

Instructions

Edit:
Uploaded a new version (Stargate_8inches_Improved_2013_07_28.stl) which solves a lot of alignment issues, and most importantly expanded the symbols so they print nicely. Lastly I moved the Ã… symbol enough to uncover it from the top chevron. After I confirm the print I'll release all the scad files.
If you want to print you'll need to print with a horizontal resolution of 0.25mm instead of the default 0.4 on an Ultimaker. I'm not sure Cura is capable of that, but KISSlicer is (really, I promise). A 0.2mm vertical resolution is just fine.


I loved the Iris Box stargate (thing:6773) and the similar gates, but I was sad that none of them have symbols!

This thing still needs work, but it's a good first draft.
I painstakingly modified an existing .SVG inkscape drawing of a stargate, and separated its components into layers which I then converted to .scad files.

Thanks to "Inkscape to OpenSCAD converter v3" (thing:25036) for the converter. It isn't perfect but it sure gets the job done!

With a main Stargate.scad file I import ('use' actually) the layer files, scaling them to make a nice-looking gate. It is a tiny bit parametric - I added an approximate scale factor to scale the radius while maintaining a plausible thickness.

The symbols should be extruded.

The scad file is included, feel free to make a remix as you see fit!
I did them sunk in to get a better print quality, despite being less accurate of a replica.

Boycott The Stargate REBOOT! Roland Emmerich hates Stargate fans!

Personally, Thingiverse is not the place for grandstanding. I'll politely ask you to take this elsewhere.

So the 'A with a circle over it' symbol (alt-143) shows up in the preview, but is converted to an 'A with a tilde over it'. Doesn't everyone love character encoding issues?!

Uploaded a new version (Stargate_8inches_Improved_2013_07_28.stl) which solves a lot of alignment issues, and most importantly expanded the symbols so they print nicely. Lastly I moved the Å symbol enough to uncover it from the top chevron. After I confirm the print I'll release all the scad files.

Of course the steps show up backwards, whoops.
Anyways you can see a hole for an M3 SCHS retaining screw to hold the Stargate on the base if desired.
I have no idea if it's toleranced correctly, I have to look into it.

IMPORTANT: Currently the CAD file looks fine but when sliced the symbols don't show up! I will have to increase their thickness.
