I completed this print-build project this weekend and I too am a big fan of Dan T. and the work he did to bring this interesting project to life. Thank you Dan for sharing you work! I am happy to pay the 25 bucks for the pleasure of pushing the limits of my knowledge of 3D printing and learning to get the most out of my Prusa MK3S printer. I learned a lot about how the tourbillon clock movement works and how a complex design like this can be implemented. Dan’s instructions were great, very complete, and easy to follow.
A very fun project to build!
My clock model runs well, though I am still fighting a bit of binding in the minute ring gear assembly that does not let it use the full unwind of the main spring before the movement stops. I had some stringing issues with the print of the #12 Guide Gears and I think these messy/imperfect gears are what are causing the occasional bind. I am going to reprint these with better quality and see if that clears up the issue. I still have to print the stand as well.
