Hi Joe,

Thanks for your response.
My wife does have a Thinkercad account, she use it all the time to do some "jewelery". (mainly earrings)
I downloaded the files in vrml-format, so I can use them in Solidworks :-)

I'm currently designing a "non-conventional" clock.
2 robot-arms (uArm derivatives), will pick up ball with numbers on, and put 4 of them on a display,
so one can read the correct time. I'm using one arm for the 2 hour-balls, and one arm for the 2 minute-balls.
In between these 2 arms, I have some "spare place", I will put your gyro at that place, but slightly modified :-)

Due to illness, it will take some months before I can complete this project, but you will surely see it on Thingiverse when done :-)
Otherwise, you can keep an eye on my personal blog: http://www.digitalplayground.be
Besides modelrailroading, I have all kinds of cool toys, like a small CNC mill (mainly used for PCBs), a large CNC mill (for metal and aluminium), a lathe, a 50W CO2 laser CNC, all kinds of microcontroller programmers etc ...
(and ofcourse a few 3D printers => currently designing/building my own "large" 3D printer, with a build volume of 55 x 55 x 55 cm.
(printer will only be 79 x 79 x 79 cm in size)

best regards from Belgium,
