I found this to be very inspirational.   Added to the printing wish list....
Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

Brilliant.

Not just for an example of what can be done with a 3d printer but also in Autodesk Fusion 360.

Cool, but I totally don't have a big enough pocket.  Maybe he can print a wrist strap for it.

Strange you show this now Joules as I started printing it yesterday and hopefully finish printing it some time today .....or not :lol:
Its putting it together that will be the fun bit ....oh and getting the non printable bits. I have found in some cases nails and brads work as shafts so onwards and upwards I say.

Get some pictures posted here Pete of your build.  I would be tempted to fiddle with the design and make it a weight driven clock, but then I can't help but mod 3D printed things.

Still have a couple bits to go but I have a weight driven clock printed to put together but looking at making it run longer  :scratch: It was designed by the same guy. Just need some metal shafts and other bits to finish it

Yep, have followed Mcor from their beginning.  Their original system was very much like what I started with in the early 90's.

I cannot tell you the countless hours I spent making models and then trying to find paints/glues that wouldn't cause the paper to swell and ruin a model.  I still have the above software for 95/XP machines.
