The Chang'e Clock, Part I: Introduction

For the past year or so, I have been working on a 3D printed mechanical desk clock. The clock is completely my own design, which made it quite a learning experience. (In fact, this is the second design attempt — there’s an earlier failed design which I will talk about later.) Now that the clock is essentially complete (though still could use some improvement), I’d like to share.

This post will be a brief overview on the design of the clock and its final pictures. Later posts in this series will go into more detail about its inner workings, and finally information on how to make one for yourself, if you so desire.
