We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a binary clock that was built into a 3d-printed case created in Minecraft. It is powered by an Arduino UNO and shows the current time in a binary coded decimal format.
The model was exported with the free tool Mineways and printed on a Zprinter 650 3d-printer, with a block size of 125mm^3 (so every block has an edge length of 5mm). After printing, LEDs were glued into the case after filing the openings a bit wider. Then, the LEDs were soldered to form a 4x4 LED matrix, and the matrix was connected to an Arduino board.

So what's this mean?
We're sure bogenfreund would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
