A kitsch product with full microprocessor power inside. A 128x64 graphic lcd screen behind the oven door which can display a steampunk clock screen, temperature, plays different steam engine sounds every 15 minutes. Logs daily temperature and can display as a graph, can wake you up in the morning with steam engine sounds.
Even has got a cuckoo clock mode.

The mechanics also work belt driven by a small DC gear motor located at rear top and it is turned on several seconds in every 15 minutes by the microcontroller inside.

the circuitry and code details are published in this project

So this is awesome. I see the clock face and the instructables, but the 3d clock you have here doesn't really exist, does it? I only ask because I would love to see the full object.

Hello and yes its not complete yet. The electronics are ready and already working in two different table clock designs. I've printed most of the parts for this steam engine clock with my old printer but I had to give the printer away and trying to get a new one nowadays. I've posted the pictures of the printed parts on to the first and only make of this clock. I'll update it when it improves.

you can see the electronics working on

happy printing.

Can we get some details on the micro-controller and display please?

the details of the circuit is published on
best regards

I'll publish the details, circuit schematic, pcb etc within a month or so. I'll need to get them ready.

coming from a fellow clock-maker, THIS is the coolest clock on this site...

Even cooler than my clocks.

Thanks mate, your work is nice. I've just reuploaded my stl parts with a bit modified ones to fix a problem. I'll continue improving my files as the work on the internal design progresses.
