Picture of Na Na Na Na ... NA BATCLOCK

Maker Video of my Batman Clock design inspired by the cover art of comic book Artist, Greg Capullo. The project mashes traditional wood burning techniques with 3D Printing.

Step 1: Instruction Video

Step 2: Parts List

Picture of Parts List
  • 9x12 Wood Painting Panel/Canvas. (I used the kind with a wooden frame in back to hide clock motor)
  • Clock Motor & Hands. (Hack an old clock or buy a new one at a hobby store)
  • Wood Burner and Pens. (I use RazorTip Burner and a writting tip & skew)
  • Acrylic Craft Paint and Brushes (Yellow, white and black)
  • TinkerCad account. (
  • Access to 3D Printer. (My local library has a Maker Space with accessible 3D Printer)
  • Black Filament.
  • Transfer Paper.
  • Fine Sandpaper
  • Epoxy. (I used wood glue but joing wood and plastic would be better with Epoxy)

Remember - Safety First. Understand and practice safe use of the tools and materials.

Step 3: Build

Please feel free to download, use or modify my design. I apologize for the quality of the image as my scanner was not big enough so I used a camera.

I modified a Batman Logo found on Thingiverse:

My 3D Printed Clock Parts can be downloaded from here:

Variations on the design:

  • Paint the cityscape and clouds with black paint instead of wood burning.
  • Cut out the cityscape with a scroll saw from 1/8" ply/MDF. It would give a interesting 3D effect.

I have other clock ideas for future projects. Please follow my Instructables and I will post once completed.
