When you like flowers and you are also very punctual, you get this kind of ideas. This clock is only for show but it will actually go "TIK-TOK". To get the feeling you can watch the video file attached at the end of this section. This is a rendered video of the motion study for 5 minutes revolution of the minute and second hands. I've skipped the hour hand as it'll hardly show any rotation in 5 minutes.
Step 1: Make the Clock Body
- Attach the given picture of the clock to the vertical plane
- Calibrate it to a suitable size
- Sketch two circles and extrude them to make the clock body
Step 2: Make the Clock Hands
- Create 3 construction planes using "Offset Plane" command (offset= 1mm)
- Sketch the profiles of the hour, minute and second hands on each plane and extrude them (0.5 mm)
Step 3: Make the Front Glass
- Create a sketch of a circle on the front plane
- Extrude it to some distance (1.5 to 2 mm)
Step 4: Give It the Appearance of a Flower
- Create a sketch on the back side of the clock
- Use line, spline, circular pattern commands
- Extrude it
- Add fillets to the outermost side
Step 5: Add the Numbers
Turn off the visibility of the canvas and add some numbers on the plane as decals to give it the appearance of a clock. I've used only Roman III, VI, IX and XII and I've attached those images for you to use. You can use 3, 6, 9 and 12. Also, if you wish you can add all those numbers from 1 to 12.
Step 6: Make It Work (optional)
- Add three revolute joints between the clock and each hand
- Create a motion study using the minute and second hand
Step 7: Get the Renderings
Once you save the file, rendering will start automatically. If you have created the motion study, choose a view and render it as the motion study.
Please share your rendering here using the "I Made It" button. I'm eager to see those!
