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
- 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. (https://www.tinkercad.com)
- 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.
