Since my wife gave me two small pocket watches as a gift I wanted a way to display them along with my favourite full size watch. This was the solution I came up with.
I printed the hoop flat and the supports separately. However, I have supplied an STL for the base and supports to be printed as one.
I tried to model the hooks, but I was unable to get then thin enough to hang the watches. I settled on copper wire from a length of electrical cable I found in my shed. The thickness of witch is 1.73mm.
Printer used was a GeeeTech MeCreator 2
For the hoop, supports and beads i printed with a 100% infill, then used 20% for the rest.
I always wanted to be a draftsman and have always had a passion for designing things. I started my life as a cabinet maker, so love making things, whether it’s out of paper, cardboard, wood or plastic.
I am a keen crafter and amateur book binder. I love computers and consider myself very computer literate. I have taught IT, built my own PC’s, repaired PC’s and worked in IT for a short while. So it was only natural that considering my background I would move into 3D printing.
I consider myself a novice, but am learning new techniques every day and love Thingyverese. What a wonderful place to learn and share my work with like minded people.
