3D model description

Hello everyone !

Here is a mechanical clock with apparent gears.

The support is in wood and the axes and the pendulum in aluminum and steel.

The weight is lead but any material works; it takes just a mass of about 2.5kg.

All the gears, the system for raising the weight, the crank, the escapement, the rake, the wedges, the dial and the hands are printed in 3D.

Everything is printed in PLA but ABS works too.

The autonomy is currently 24 hours for a descent weight of about 1m50, but I seek to increase the autonomy to 10 days.

The center of gravity of the pendulum should be approximately 1 meter from the top of the pendulum for a mass less than 500g.

The clock was designed to be made of wood, I found the 2D drawings on the website and then I modified several pieces and some of them.


The plan is of course supplied and is particularly useful for the support (which can not be printed) and the final assembly.

In case of question, do not hesitate to leave a comment.
