Resin Clock

Introduction: Resin Clock

This clock was made for test the resistant of a display immersed in polyester resin.  The real project will be an intervalometer for a reflex camera.

The second image was the first try to immerse a display into polyester resin, because of the resin can reach high temperature while curing, a LCD is not the better option.  This clock was made with an OLED display.

The rest of the images show the process.

After the resin is cured it must be polished.

The electronic was soldered "on the air".  The components are:

microcontroller PIC18F2525
real time clock  PCF8583
battery (3V)       CR2032
display               128x64 0,96" OLED DISP

    Is this the same resin that comes with polyester repair kit?

    How do you polish the resin? I have in mind a similar project using the Adafruit digital clock with a blue fluorescent display.

    I polish the resin with 300, 600 and 1000 wet sandpaper, then I use liquid polish. Here where I live, there is a good product called titanlux.

    This is really cool! However, it's missing some key details to make it a true instructable. What inspired you to do this? Any particular reason to cast it in resin other than style? Do you have a schematic? Source code? etc.

    This is a very good start and a neat project, but if I or another reader wished to build this, we'd have a very hard time without more details.

    i think we can assume from his lack of inspiration that this is either a stepping stone for a bigger project; an intervalometer if i remember reading correctly. that or whatever he's doing is "for kicks and giggles!"

    Hi,

    Yes, at the beginning I just wanted to test the display with the resin, but later I thought, 'and if it finally works?', Then I tried to make something simply but because of this, it is not a really low power consumption device, but with some modification it could be.

    Hi,

    This is my first instructable. I can add more photos like schematics and resin cast process, but now I don't know if it was better use a step by step instructable.

    Sorry for my english.
