Perpetual Clock

#HowTo

Jonathan Odom teaches you how to build the Perpetual Clock, a 3D-printed Arduino-powered clock. While it gives the time in five-minute intervals, the overall presentation makes it worthwhile for having approximate time.

I made this using just about every machine at Pier 9 (waterjet, sand blaster, laser cutter, 3D printer, electronics lab, etc.). It's made of 6061 aluminum, steel hardware (screws, nuts, bearings), 3D printed gears, an Arduino Uno, and the hour and minute panels are laser cut / etched plywood.
