Hi there. This is truly a work in progress. I’ve been able to get this far from a PDF of the building of this clock from a UK designer. Not done yet but have an awful lot of left over parts that I don’t know where they go. Just like everything else I take a part. Anyway I hope to finalize this SolidWorks digital plan and then try cutting these things out. Just thought you might like to see what I have done so far over the last two weeks. Enjoy.

-- Rich, Nevada,

Great modeling work! Did you draw all of the individual gears or are they some sort of pre made component? I have always wanted to try solidworks..I am a AutoCAD/Sketchup user, but that looks really cool!

You just blew my mind.

How will you cut these?

I actually have the AutoCAD dwgs for these gears and the spindles. A few years back when I worked at an Architectural firm that had a laserCAM I cheated and cut a set of gears out of 1/4” stock. Came out beautiful, albeit with black edges from “burning” the wood.

I have yet to figure it all out, but at some point this year I hope to have it completed. Will post pictures if I do.

If anyone’s interested in the AutoCAD DWG’s, PM me with your email and I’ll send them out.

Great job on the modeling, I’m having a go at it too, but I’m afraid I won’t have the resilience to go all the way ;)

Have your say...
