Hi all! While I was working on my Mark 1 helmet video, I had the idea to make a quick 3D printed "under-the-shirt" arc reactor.

It evolved into bigger project with adding the swappable faceplates with different arc reactor profiles. Some of the designs aren't 100% true because I had to come up with 2D 'representations' but it's still a fun little cosplay project that you could put together in less than a day.

There's some light bleed around the edges but that could be fixed by painting the outer sides of the main light source with black paint to block the light. Already thinking about designing a V2.

For detailed how-to steps and links to the files, you can check out the instructable here:

Enjoy!

this is awesome, and a far cry from me walking around my elementary school with a puck light stuck to my chest.

Great build!
