Watch case: 4th? attempt

A new attempt to print a watch case.  Printed it in a transparent material, in a coarse pitch so it was fast.  It ended up too brittle.

It is also clearly too big for my girly wrist.

But the watch band mechanism kinda works.

The trick to making the band is to stop half-way through and insert brads as hinge pins, and then print over the top.

I discovered that I had to help the brads seat themselves by warming them up and pushing with a soldering iron


The watch case is way to big, and I printed too many links

Tourbillon Project

Tourbillon Project I was interested to push the limits of 3D printing... basically for the hell of it, and to distract me from being indoors...
