Clockception - How to Build a Clock Made From Clocks!

Hi All! This is my submission for the 2020 First Time Author Contest! If you like this project, I’d greatly appreciate your vote :) Thanks!
This instructable will guide you through the process for building a clock made of clocks! I’ve cleverly named it, “Clockception”. I know, very original.
It is actually a replica of the ClockClock designed and built by Humans Since 1982. I came across the clock a few years ago and I was instantly mesmerized by its synchronized movement and minimalistic beauty. If you haven’t seen it, take a look at their site as it truly is a work of art.
That said, bespoke art usually comes at a price. In this case, $6k - $11k depending on the finish.. If you have the means, I’d highly recommend you pick one up. But if you’re like me and don’t have a spare $6k laying around, then you’re in luck because today I’m going to show you how to build a simpler version of one for around $200 with some basic tools and a 3D printer!
Note: The saying, “you get what you pay for” holds true in this case as my design isn’t able to make the complex synchronized moments that the original does. But I still think its pretty cool, especially since you’ll be able to say you made it!”
