Team Hugo Cabret - Clock Project
Our group has decided to design and build a functioning clock from scratch using Solidworks. The clock, operating on a specially ordered clock motor, will use a set of gears to display seconds, minutes, hours, and potentially days of the week. We will design the gears, face, and hands of the clock on Solidworks, and we will print them using the 3D printer. Because our motor has only one shaft, we will need fifteen gears to connect to the second hand, minute hand, and hour hand. The motor completes one revolution per minute; thus, the minute hand will run 1/60 of that frequency, and the hour hand must then run 1/12 of the frequency of the minute hand.
Andrew - Research gear design and design gears on Solidworks. Isaac - Research gear design, calculate gear placement and Theo - Abby - Christine -
We will need to order a 120 V clock motor with shaft operating at 60 Hz. This will cost approximately $15 from _________. Additionally, we will need to design each of our 15 gears by hand on Solidworks.
