Sand Powered State of the Art Time Piece - Customizable

3D model description

# #I don't know about you but I like my standards backed by a visible, measureable event.

That's why I think it's high time we adopt the hour glass as a time standard. Hopefully this customizable, 3D printable, *highly accurate and stylish hour glass will serve as an ambassador of time.

My one and only dream for this listing is that someone with a dual extruder will print this out in PC or clear ABS and laywood. I created this object to serve as a print challenge for the soliforums. It isn't too hard to print. It is a little tough to get to look perfect. I am sure you won't have any issues though, will you?

Feel free to drop by and post your results. The offical challenge stl has been posted here as well.

*individual results may vary, void where prohibited, not meant to diagnose, treat or prevent any illness, discontinue use if rashes persist.

3D printing settings

Update: File should always work now using any settings. I stayed up late last night fixing the bugs. Code needs to be cleaned up still but file works as is.

Do not use support!

You can print with low infill.

  • After you print this, clean up around the plug cutout
  • Fill top glass 3/4 full of DRY FINE sand.
  • Carefully insert plug.
  • Enjoy
  • 3D file format: STL
