I'm actually literally just about to do a RPI Zero W clock (now the W has come out) with the Red 7-segment Adafruit LED display. However, I'm adding the amp hat & speakers from Adafruit. But this should be very helpful to have your model as a starting point. Especially as I'm new to 3d printing. Once I get it done and working, I'll post!

Are you syncing with NTP servers for keeping time or relying on the Raspberry Pi? I've read that the Pi isn't very reliable for this purpose and that either using NTP sync or an external RTC module is recommended. Regardless, neat project!

hey there! I'm not actually displaying time, I'm displaying Subway station predictions, but I did find that the pi wasn't too great with time in the examples. Syncing with NTP servers is probably a good idea
