Hi, I have put up a summary of how to use this set of things to make a clock on the web at http://tribo.net.au/test.html. Its a clockface consisting of 12 individual numbers and a centre piece which is compatible with spools for PLA filament from https://3dfillies.com/

Hi, a bit of a delay, but I have added 2 solidworks files for the clock parts to the stls and jpegs already there. Regards

What a genius design to save our landfills from junk plastic.
Could you include the design file so the tabs that position the numbers can be rotated to re-position the numbers?

what infill did you use

Hi Lance768, I didn't specify infill, so its just "printer defaults" as far as I am concerned. The parts don't have any structural requirements so stuff like infill is not that important. I print with a 0.6mm nozzle which makes parts quite fast.

Hi, I print all the parts of the spool clock with supports but see that as a waste because there is almost as much support material as actual parts in the numbers! I think the parts could be printed without supports but at the moment I haven't put in the time to work out how to level the bed of my Cetus 3d printer. Regards Steve Nurse

did you need supports for all of it?
