Fantastic design but the wiring is actually really hard to complete :(

Hey, would you recommend I use white or clear filament for the diffusers?


how did u rape the wire around

Don't worry I answered my own question.

If anyone needs to know they are 5mm LEDs and they fit perfectly

What size LEDs were used?


im having trouble creating the grid raft for part 9. cura wont let me use zero value for middle layer of raft. any sugestions

Here is what I used. I glued it to the back side of the gold rings in the center of the reactor. Check out my build to see how it looks.

I just wanted share the stand I designed for this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3388798. It turned out really well and the reactor fits perfect. Great design on the reactor. I had a lot of fun making it.

not sure it matters, but while printing part #3, I noticed that the shorter pegs, 1 of them is 2mm taller then the others.

As stated I've made a start on it and so far I've mange to print the smaller parts bud waiting on some more ABS to come through the post such as the transparent and black abs for the lightup part and the bottm. I've attached a picture of what I've done so far. A big thank you to the designer of the is brilliant ;)

Will post the finished product once done.

So inspired I'm gonna start my build this week. Brilliant work

Can you post the video again? It is private, Thanks a lot

What size leds are they? 3mm or 5mm?

Comments deleted.

GREAT prop file. Thanks for the upload. had a blast making it.

Thanks and really nice video!


What coil thickness did you use?

Great thing!

20 gauge.


Would it be possible for you to detail how you wired the lighting? Also, I noticed you are using a microboard in one of you pictures. How are you using it?

Thanks in advance


All of the wiring is in the image assembly. For this type of assembly you dont need a microboard. In a future update i will upload a new assembly with Adafruit neopixel RGB LEDS and an arduino nano.


What are the settings for the diffusor and what material / color is used?

Transparent PLA with 20% infill

I just finished printing one. I printed it with 3d solutech clear PLA, 0.8 shell no infill 0.1mm layer height. It came out great.
