What and why?
For my Final Project I have decided to do a wall clock. My decision behind it was due to many reasons. First was the feedback I got from the previous project, where i focused too much on the functionality, which ultimately limited my choices in the aesthetics. For this project I wanted to do a project that serves a simple functionality while giving me the freedom in the aesthetics. Thus, a wall clock was one of many options I came up with.
I decided to go for a mechanical engineering theme for my wall clock, where I used tools such as hammer, wrenches, screwdrivers, fasteners, etc, as the clock numbers. As for the color, i followed the cu boulder logo. I felt like making the clock talk about my journey in college. A mechanical engineer at CU Boulder.
Material and budget
Wall arms ( owned )
3d printing filament ( 40$)
spray paint (6$)
Battery pack (6$)
For the future I would love to add spinning gears with an external motor to give more mechanical feeling. I also would love to make a case for the clock to protect it and make it durable.
