Clock 13 FDM was originally designed to be built by the SLA process, this version has be completely re-designed so that it can be be built using the more common 3D printers using the FDM process.
The design is simple and straight forward requiring only some additional nuts, bolts, shafts and bearings.
The clock will run for about 10 hours and is accurate to less than a minute over that time.
Unlike all the wooden clocks on the site this clock requires only the STL files to allow you to build the complete clock. These files have been generated with the more complex parts split into simple ones, that can be quickly solvent bonded together, instead of having to use to many supports. The clock was designed in mm but additional files are provided so that you can use inch components , such as the shafts and bearings.
The clock needs a couple of weights to drive it so I have supplied STL files for the two weight containers so that they can be filled either with lead shot or steel balls (shotgun ammo) The pendulum bob also requires some weight so it is made hollow so you can add some weight to it.
STL files, and the IGS files that can be used with your 3D printer can be downloaded here for $26.
