The HexaClock is a hexagon-shaped LED matrix with each pixel also in the shape of a hexagon! This clock will pour colors onto your wall.

There are only 5 parts to be printed. You need a printer with at least 225x200mm printbed. For the HexGrid part, which is the front of the clock, it is probably the best to have a glossy flat surface like glass or PEI.
