If you’re ever wanted a convincing arc reactor from Iron Man without the hassle of being kidnapped by terrorists, we have the 3D print for you.

Created by MyMiniFactory user Marco Occhionero, this solid 3D print pulls off the lighting effect thanks to certain parts being printed in a transparent plastic. The files for the print come with holes deigned for 5mm LEDs that provide the glow.

If you want your own you can find the files for free on MyMiniFactory. 

This version of the arc reactor is the one seen in the first Iron Man movie and its used to power the Mark I armour.This isn’t the first time we’ve seen an arc reactor 3D print, even of this design, but it’s definitely one of the most detailed.

Once you’ve chosen a suitable arc reactor, don’t forget that you can 3D print an entire suit too.
