Hey everyone! I am new to this site and this is my first go at replicating a prop. I wanted to start off relatively simple, so I decided to build the automatic locking mechanism seen in Amazing Spiderman 2. I have seen a few attempts on youtube, but none of them are screen accurate.

I was able to get some screen grabs, which allowed me to identify the locking mechanism, actuator and receiver used. That being said, I cannot for the life of me figure out which controller is used on the right hand side of the receiver. I am thinking the main controller is just an arduino (or an arduino type knockoff), and there is some sort of shield on top. I cannot imagine it is a custom shield, so if anyone has any idea what shield this is (or board in general if it is not a shield) please let me know!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I will continue to update this thread as I progress with the build. As of right now I am just waiting for parts to arrive that I have ordered.

Re: Amazing Spiderman 2 -- Door Lock Build *Help!*

The lock arrived today, and it looks like an exact match. There were more modifications done to it than I originally expected.The arm that connects the bolt to the outside housing is much larger than what comes with it, so I will either need to find the linkage arm or make one. Also, the post that the actuator is mounted to is not there.

Now comes the task of figuring out the size of the linkage arm and actuator from the known dimensions of the lock. I know this is probably relatively simple to do, however this will be the first time doing so. If anyone has any tips, please let me know!!

Re: Amazing Spiderman 2 -- Door Lock Build *Help!*

Just a small update...I have been working in my free time so the build is going slower than I had planned. Also, waiting for different components is half the battle. Anyway, I have some pictures of what I had to do to the lock assembly to match the movie as best as I could.

I took a small hack saw to cut off the two small hinge mounts as well as the bolt stop, and filed down the extra with a small file. This could have also been easily done with a dremel in a fraction of the time, but I am limited on my tools at the moment.

I filled the small cuts and gaps with some Tamiya modeling putty and painted it with Krylon Metallic Foil spray paint which matches the original metal surprisingly well! I still need to drill and tap a hole on top of the key section to mount the actuator.

On another note, the receiver came in the mail today!

More to come! I apologize that this build is a little dry so far, but there are lots of little details that I wasn't expecting. I haven't been able to locate the arm that connects the lock and actuator, so I will probably fabricate one or just model it, print it, and paint it to look the same.

Thank you! I am trying to do something that I have yet to see on the forum :).

(Maybe I just haven't searched hard enough!)

I just joined this forum after lurking for about a year and I gotta say I've seen allot of cool stuff but this prop build has gotta be the most "outside the box" build I've seen, bravo! Can't wait for your next updates!

I appreciate the kind words! I should have a progress post coming early next week.

Re: Amazing Spiderman 2 -- Door Lock Build *WIP*

Hey guys, quick update. I finally received the actuator and hardware as seen in the movie.

Lock 7.jpg Lock 8.jpg

Here are a couple better reference shots I was able to get as well...

HD5.png HD1.png

If you look closely you can see that the actuator in the movie has 3 more wires than the one I purchased, however they aren't actually used (you can see in those shots that the lead is just leaning near the controller board). So I opted to get the one without.

Here is a reference picture of the transmitter he uses to control the lock, which in all honesty is overkill for this...

HD4.png

However, I was able to figure out which one it was and it was a good price, so I picked one up.

The next thing on the agenda is getting to work on making the connecting arm from the actuator to the lock. After that, I will sort out the electronics and that black box and go ahead and mount it. I have some 3/8" aluminum plating on order that everything will be bolted to.

As always, any advice is welcome. Thanks!

Connecting arm (linkage) mounted.

Here is a quick reference photo to get an idea of the scale. As you can see it is actually quite small.

Re: Amazing Spiderman 2 -- Door Lock Build *UPDATE*

I am finally starting to wire up the electronics, which actually was incredibly simple since you can just plug the actuator straight into the receiver without any programming... Which I found slightly boring so I decided to take some inspiration from this picture taken from the comic book.

Seeing as I will have some space to spare, I decided to wire up a key fob receiver to the mechanism, as well as a green and red led's that will be mounted to the black box once built. I will continue to tweak the program to get it exactly how I want it, but until then it works just fine.

Here is a real quick video showing how it works...


I will probably be wrapping up this build this coming weekend, so I will post the final product soon.

Dang man. I'm itching to see it all come together!

Re: Amazing Spiderman 2 -- Automatic Door Lock Build *VIDEO*

Build is complete. I had to take some creative liberty with the black box as the microcontroller I used is a decent amount larger and I added the led's and key fob receiver. In the end I would say is it close to screen accurate, but not exact.

If anyone felt like replicating this build, I will send you my part files as well as links to components.

One of the cooler props from the movie I've seen! Looks like something I would like to take a shot at eventually.

Re: **COMPLETE** Amazing Spiderman 2 -- Automatic Door Lock

I will post the full parts lists on this thread as soon as I can. I will also upload the .stl files to thingiverse to make it easier to download.

Also, I am planning to sell the one I built as a 'one off'.

Is there a specific code I need to import into the arduino? And on your videos, one shows a breadboard. Do I need one in order to complete the project??Really need help :( thanks!!
