I did say making an arm for my schmeckenbecher clock. This was my first try. Yes I made an arm by hand. These are quite good first trys. The one not extracted was almost perfectIt might help if you can explain just what it is that you trying to make and what you are doing. Has your "progress" led to a successful usable part?
No I had one original arm and I made a duplicate by hand. Carving and sanding. Took to long so I made a mold. Took out the piece from the mold then injected a 2 part mix turns to hard plastic.Yeah, now that I know what I'm looking at, I can see it What did you make it out of? 3D printer?
Very nice results. This is a great procedure, if you have the original to make a mold from.So if you want a part made of an antique clock you either find original. Lots of times impossible or make it yourself. Here's my progression of making my own arms for my SCHMECKENBECHER
Thanks. Your wrong on being paid. I already have people wanting the arms. And I need 4 for my 2 clocks. The mold yes took my time but once in the 3d printer I can make it in 10 minutes. These Schmeckenbecher arms are wanted by many that have these clocks as they are easy to breakVery nice work! You'll never get paid for it, but it's quite good
So my arm is very difficult to 3d scan because it's so small. I'm sure people much more knowledgeable could do it. And eventually I will learn but for now i went back to molds and injection molds which is probablythe best way anyways. My first one had to short of peg coming off made another and got it down. One mold so making one at a time.Cool. Let us know when you are up and running for supplying them!
