3D model description
This is my second clockwork design. It took just under a month from starting the design, to posting it. I modeled it after a Cabestan Triple Axis Tourbillon, which they offer in their high-end watches, and spent many hours looking at Youtube videos of the watch.
Similar to the Gyrotourbillon, I tried to make the model an accurate (scaled up) version of the original Cabestan mechanism. I printed the screws to scale, then stuck a 2mm screw in their centers to hold it together. I also included Incabloc shock absorbers by printing clear red 'jewels', and working snap rings to hold them in place.
This model is small, about 140mm in diameter. I power it with a 2 Amp USB power supply.
