Ok, First off I would like to say hello. I am in no way physicist and i am just some dumb dude, but like a normal human-being i have questions. so pre-apologies for dumb questions.
now my question:
How is an antineutrino genrator built?

Just did a quick skim of Wikipedia and I can't seem to find anything related to "antineutrino generators" other than, well, the antineutrino. You may have hit a roadblock here.

yeah i did the whole google thing too. thats how i found this forum. i have hit a dead end, and maybe thought someone in here could enlighten me in laymens terms on this subject.
lol oh well at least its up here and hopefully maybe someone can help in the future. thanks a bunch for trying tho. i really appreciate it.
perhaps its called an antineutrino reactor? idk just a guess

Neutrinos and antineutrinos are created by beta (+ and -) and neutron capture radioactivity.
Both natural radioactivity and the one created in nuclear reactors.
Fission reactions create neutrinos as well if memory serves.
More artificially, particles accelerators create them in many occasions.
