3D model description

I present to you the Retrograde Clock Model 2

How to assemble this clock

Parts required:

  • 12888 clock movement with 4.5 mm length threaded shaft (WHITE SHAFT with 4.98mm dia. hour shaft/3.12mm dia. minute shaft) with rubber washer, flat washer and nut for mounting.

  • 2 pcs - 19 mm x 2 mm dia. round rod (brass or stainless steel). Ends should be free of burrs and chamfered to allow for easy insertion.

Tools required:

  • 2 mm drill bit
  • A reamer made with a ~50mm length of 2mm round rod with tip cut diagonally. Leave burrs and sharp edges as is.
  • 3mm drill bit to remove the burrs on the holes.
  • Pin vise for the drill bit and reamer. (included)
  • Wrench to tighten the clock nut. (3d printable wrench included)

Biggest piece is the Chassis / Face: around 210mm x 150mm
For those with smaller build plate, a split Chassis/Face can be printed on a 150mm x 150mm or 150mm diameter (delta) print bed. The split pieces can be aligned using a pair of short (~5mm) piece of 1.75mm filament alignment pins. They can then be glued using CA glue.


Added Chassis split in half for printing on smaller print beds (150 x 150 mm or delta 150 mm diameter).

File names are:

  • minute half chassis.stl
  • hour half chassis.stl

Instructions added in Assebly Guide.pdf

Due to popular request, I have included an alternate clock face / chassis that reads 00->60

  • chassis 0060.stl
