I built each “layer” of the reactor so that each could be built independently of each other in case I made design changes along the way, and I was glad I did so.
I had planned on adding an inner ring of light to the interior of the reactor using an LED ring light used in car taillights. When I bought one it wasn’t as bright as I’d hoped to I scratched the idea. I decided to place eight more high-intensity LEDs behind the repulsor emitter in a 1/4″ area of space.
Here’s a pic of the layers disassembled and assembled:
The layers consist of:
The main ring, the repulsor shielding, the main power cabling, the repulsor emitter, the repulsor reflector, the light chandelier, the secondary lighting ring, the repulser emitter light, the electronics layer, the mechanical layer (gear) and the heat sink foundation.
Here everything is stacked together and some of the heat sink fins are removed.
An inner lighting test….neat!
Here it is with all parts assembled:
