ADOBE PREMIERE PRO
I grew up playing the Ratchet and Clank games on the PlayStation and decided to build one of the weapons from the games. I’m already in the process of building Clank (the small robot you see below), so I decided to create Ratchet’s OmniWrench.
The OmniWrench is the blue/silver weapon Ratchet is holding on the right. The weapon changes every few games, so I decided to settle on the current iteration which is dubbed the ‘Millennium 12’ OmniWrench. I 3D modelled this from scratch using reference imagery from the games and then designed it for 3D printing and assembly.
I also did my own electronics for it. My setup consists of three strips of Electroluminescent Tape, one for each jaw and then the central junction light panel. The Electroluminescent tape is powered by four AA batteries, which runs into an inverter that illuminates the Electroluminescent tape. Also branching off before the inverter I have my four blue 10mm LEDs which illuminate are the circular light panels on the sides of the jaws. All of this is operated with a latching switch I have recessed into the pommel.
