Very cool design. I took an old clock, removed the mechanism and proceeded to make a Halloween gift out of it for our friends who throw an annual blowout Halloween party. Using Blender I took the clock face, scaled it, added a custom bezel and then mounted it with Velcro in a spooky-looking Kodama Tree (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2245881).

Low Poly Kodama Tree

Great idea! Sumptuously!

I've printed all the pieces, very cool design. Can you link the mechanism used? I want to be sure I get the correct one.
Also, what is used for the hands? Are the printed or included in the mechanism kit? The look glow in the dark.

Thank you. Can you show somewhere how the hanger is attached. I'm really not understanding where it goes. I've tried a few combinations but none make sense.

I screwed the back panel with screws. Look at the photo of the yellow oval.
I bought a defective mechanism, unfortunately. Part of the pendulum was broken. You can break a piece of plastic to put on a moving part. Look at the photo of the red oval.

Couple questions:

1) What layer do you change the filament color?
2) Why ABS instead of PLA?

I change the thread on the 13th layer.
I do not use PLA.

The clock mechanism showed up today. However, I cannot get the nut started on the threads once I slip it in the printed clock face. Any suggestions? Its like the clock face is 1mm too high in my case.
I can try cutting away some of the plastic on the mechanism. -- it is kind of raised.

Did you have this problem?

Yes, this problem was. A defective mechanism came to me. You can cut off some of the plastic. It will help.

Great design! It’s hard to tell from your link which mechanism you used. Can you indicate how long your minute hand is?

Thank you! I used the mechanism as in the picture. The minute arrow has a length of 90 mm.
