Here is a 3D-Printed Pendulum Clock

Unfortunately the files are not available but the clock does appear to be based on documents circa 1878 that detail the clock’s inner workings – hint hint – otherwise the clock costs ~$2,800.

In 1878 Moritz Grossmann, founder of the German Watchmaking School in Glashütte, wrote an article for the German Horological Journal describing design criteria and practical solutions for a precision regulator clock. Grossmann’s explanations from 1878 form the basis for the design of the Ingénieur du Temps 3D printed clock. Important features such as the dial layout and the repartition of the gear train are taken directly from Grossmann’s explanations resulting in a reliable and accurate clock that is esthetically pleasing. From that solid base modern 3D printing technology allows a playful execution of the design resulting in a very modern clock based on historical principals.

Specifications:
– Precision 1 Second Pendulum Wall Clock
– Printed with modern 3D printing technology
– 9 precision ball axle bearings and 2 bronze anchor bearings to minimise friction
– Carbon fiber pendulum rod with low thermal coefficient of expansion for best timekeeping
– Graham Escapement
– 8 Day Power reserve

Height 1080mm, Width 305mm, Depth 100mm
Modern 3D printing technology allows freedom of forms and colors.
Any two colors can be chosen for your clock, further colors in option.
