Mechanical clock always was considered more interesting modern electronic, quartz. It is amazing that the small mechanism consisting from a gear wheel and springs – quite qualitative and serves a long time.

Andy Hudson-Smith from University institute of London this week presented excellent functional 3D a printing mechanical clock which are made on the basis of updatings of drawings with woodentimes.com and are unpacked on MakerBot Replicator 2.

Details are made in SketchUp, and are transformed to.stl a format later to import them to MakerWare. No matter what detail is unpacked separately. On the press of all details for hours 4 days left, on the completion of assembly they weighed 600 гр. It is necessary to get them each 48 hours, but they work and show exact time.
