Hi guys, I’m the designer of this clock. The clock is a typical scroll saw project.
I don’t know, why the author of the article said, it was lasercut.
I made my clock with my self build CNC Router „Solidis“, but most people build my projects with a scroll saw.
You all right. With micro controllers or stepper motors you can build a clock which is much more
accurate. But my intention was to design a clock which is entertaining and a bit funny.
Inaccuracy at the cutting process is not really a problem at this clock because the ball rolls down always the same
way. So the inaccuracies are also always the same.
I like the idea of shaddack. At the moment you can regulate the angle also, but manually.
You should see a rolling ball clock as a piece of art with entertainment value
