YouTuber presents minimalist digital wall clock from the 3D printer

In his YouTube video, maker Lukas Deem explains step by step how he built a kinetic clock with 3D printed parts. The starting point for the project was instructions for a minimalist wall clock from Instructables.

In the video, Deem takes us through the construction process in detail: from sourcing the individual parts, such as an Arduino microcontroller, various servo motors and a real-time clock module, to the laborious and time-consuming 3D printing, cleaning and assembly of the individual parts, to programming and adjustment using potentiometers.

A total of 30 servomotors in the clock ensure that the clock faces move in three dimensions and create a shadow effect. According to Deem, the 3D printing of the individual parts alone took around 85 hours on his Ender 3 Pro.

To further enhance the self-made kinetic clock, the YouTuber modified the original design: he developed his own brackets to neatly route the cables and house the electronics in a housing on the back of the clock.
