Captain America Wakandan Shield BUILD (INFINITY WAR)

To see that we could become something
more So when they needed us we could fight the battles that they never could Are you guys excited? I am and you know
what that means Well for Civil War I made Captain
America’s electromagnetic shield And it’s kind of my number one video on the
channel so for infinity war I think it’s Time we make his new Wakandan shield Get this man a shield Now the tricky part with doing
a project like this is until the movie comes out we don’t have that much
reference material we’ve seen a few glimpses of the shield and some of the
trailers and other promotional material but there’s still a chance it might be a
bit different in the movie But, we’re gonna use what we have and see what we
can come up with so follow me and let’s start the design Hurry up
so to start the design what I’ve done is I’ve actually taken a still from the
trailer and then I’ve extracted the shield, I’ve scaled that to approximately
the right size and brought it into SolidWorks which lets me actually draw overtop of
the picture to get the right shape So let’s do that all right so that
mechanism should work but to make sure let’s make a quick cardboard prototype
using the laser cutter Alright that prototype looks pretty good
and as you can see the mechanism actually works quite well too so what
we’ve done here is we actually 3D printed some rails of the actual part
that we’re going to be ordering for the final design and the way the actual
mechanism works is we’ve got these slots and as you can see when the shield
extends a little bit only the tip moves but once it moves about an inch it hits
the curve which then forces the wings out This captures the design element
that’s shown in the trailer how the front spike comes out at first and then
the wings open and I think that’s really cool Now all we need is a way to power
this and to make it look a bit more like a real shield so let’s go back to CAD so again I’m going to be using the
reference images from the trailer to help me design the actual aesthetics to
try and make it as accurate as possible to the movies Now that, that looks pretty good but
before we build it let’s see what would it actually look like on my arm come
with me I’ve always loved in the Iron Man movies
how they show Tony Stark doing his designs with Holograms in real life so
we’ve actually been upgrading our augmented and virtual reality
capabilities here at Hacksmith Industries But enough talking about it
lets show you. Jarvis activate shield pretty cool eh
let’s see if we can open it too Actually can we get some sound effects too? Jarvis: Sir, there are still terabytes of calculations needed. Now what would be a
good way to test the shield? What if some bad guys broke into my shop? I feel like we’re going off script. So what do you guys think? Should we make it I think the
design is just about ready to go. Just kidding the laser cutter is already
cutting it you know this would be a lot easier if
you didn’t steal my *@*#ing shield Tony it’s really hard to make your own Stark: sometimes you got a run before you can walk and for gosh sake watch your language So I’m pretty happy with the design now which means it’s time to make it out of metal now when I started this project we had
no way of actually manufacturing the shield in-house so we actually had to
get the parts laser cut by a local machine shop but halfway through we got
a new piece of equipment delivered it’s a Maverick CNC plasma cutter that
we got from Elite Metal Tools Elite Metal Tools provides all kinds of industrial
machinery and helped us find the perfect plasma table for our needs if you need
help choosing the industrial machine to make something great head on over to EMT
now that we have this machine let’s cut out the next set of Captain America
shields so we had a slight issue while welding
the top piece of Captain America’s shield We kind of forgot it warps if you
do a whole lot of welding so we need to try and straighten this out somehow
and what’s the point of making a project if you’re not going to use it so I
actually got Thor’s hammer here which weighs about 75 pounds and we’re gonna see if maybe we can
straighten out the shield Very scientific all right we’ve got all the pieces
welded for the most part now we can actually assemble the mechanism and see
if it works I should really make a third hand like
maybe like Winter Soldier but I just have an extra arm off my ribcage cool
now that’d be weird it’s okay we’re putting 800 psi through
it therefore it’s it’s just it’s a whole bunch more pressure Is it allowed to do that? Well, it hasn’t exploded yet This is the part I haven’t quite thought through yet. well it’s late Sunday night but our
first prototype works Alright, so when I first assembled it it wasn’t
sliding too well but we’ve made some adjustments to the rails and we’ve lubed
the whole thing and now well you’ll see not bad
all right so how is it actually actuated well what we’re doing is we’re actually
using a 16 gram co2 cartridge as the air source for the project and it runs
through a check valve and what a check valve means is pressure can only flow
through the check valve in this direction so when you build up pressure
in here it doesn’t try and escape back over here when you press the button it
goes into the extended position then we have a four two valve over here which
basically changes the direction of the air flowing through the pneumatic
cylinder which is mounted under here so if we press press this button down and
then trigger it it retracts if you press it without pushing it it extends and it
fits nicely right inside the handle Alright so now that we know that the
mechanism works well let’s finish up with a few of the detail pieces we’ve
got a few more pieces right here that we’re actually gonna weld onto this and
then we paint it and it should look just like the one in the movie let’s get
started all right so the first prototypes done
and I think it works pretty good hey anyways we’ve made a few design
changes for the final version and we’re actually making two more shields for our
ultimate test video which is coming out really soon make sure you subscribe
notifications turned on but right now let’s give you a sneak peek of the kind
of destruction we’re going to do with this thing all right for this test I’m gonna need
some safety glasses how about old versus new all right that was just a little taste
of the destruction we’re gonna be doing with these shields I know you guys are
gonna want to see me go ham with these things so make sure you hit that
subscribe button and turn notifications on this shield test is gonna be awesome
plus I even got a licensed Captain America costume for it special thanks to
killer body for hooking me up with this awesome costume let us know in the
comments below what you want to see me smash with these shields and don’t
forget to check out infinity war to see how this project stacks up to the real
thing thanks for watching make sure you’re subscribed Hang on, do I want to bring the arm up, after you’ve thrown it, or do I want to be in a position? It would look cooler if you’ve thrown it and I’m like WOAH but it’s heavy.
