Dashboard Widgets Wall Clock
by ecken, published
If you're a visual type of person, here's a creative clock for your wall that will keep your creativity delighted. This stylish design was inspired by Mac OSX Dashboard widgets. The clocks internals are from Quartex Push-On movements. The icons, frame and seconds hand actually glow in the dark, while the florescent red hour and minute hands glow vibrant red under black uv lighting. This clock is 140mmx140mm (5.5x5.5") in size. Enjoy!
The dashboard base is printed in two colors, using the "Change Filament" during printing method. In the photo above, the base is printed with black and glow-in-the-dark ABS. The enclosure piece fits Mini-Quartex Push-On movements. The enclosure houses the clock components and requires taping or glueing the edges to the back of the dashboard base. The second, minute and hour hands should fit right where they're suppose to and have no tolerance issues. These hands can be printed together in MakerWare. The top of the enclosure has a tab for hanging on walls. Printed on a MakerBot Replicator and sliced with MakerWare using high setting, skeinforge, 0% infill, 1 shell and 0.2mm layer height. I used accelerated x3g 80/150 rates. If you don't have access to a 3d printer, check out our Etsy page http://etsy.com/shop/Pixil3D
