It took me next to forever, but since we still haven't gotten the test jig to tick, I guess I'm not that late. :-)
Here is a clock script (intended to work with my clock builder script) for an 8 gear clock with hour, minute and second hands but with all the improvements we have currently made to the test jig... and an actual solid, connected frame that is composed of parts without any overhangs. I think this is revision D, but who's counting?
This is an academic exercise until we get the test jig ticking, but I will sleep better knowing the frame problem is solved. :-)
Feel free to play with the script if you want to explore possibilities, but be aware that the frame code is rough and ready and absolutely 'sans commentaires'.
