Perhaps the most accurate mechanical clock ever made in Algodoo?

Tested over 24 hours and it was only 1 minute off by the end of the test for me.
Probably depends on the computer and some other factors.
But for me personally, I would trust it to get me to work on time if I set it every 24 hours. :yum:

Speaking of that. To set it, pull out the crown by the flat side part, and spin the round part at the end. You can give it a little flick to give the hands some kinetic energy.

The clock isn't powered by energy stored in a spring. The mainspring on top is just for looks. It doesn't do anything.
Instead, it's powered by a hinge motor set to 1000RPM.
I wanted to make it windable but I kind of ran out of patience. )|(

Anyways, hope you enjoy it. And please don't try to use it as a real clock without testing it's accuracy first :tup:

Excellent work! Great to see you are still making things for so many years now.
I totally agree with wild bill. This clockwork is absolutely amazing! :tup: _o_ :tup:
Nice work. Looks good. :tup: :tup: I see you used "real" gears and cut them to make them look sharper. In the old Phun days I think you could reduce the opacity slightly and gears would sharpen right up, but now with Algodoo we have to resort to cutting big gears. Most people will notice the sharp gear tooth profile before they notice a cut. This scene works flawlessly. I didn't realize that a tourbillon is the balanced escapement at the bottom of your watch until I started playing with your other scene.
Thanks guys!
s_noonan, honestly I thought the sharpening effect on the gears made a difference in the physical interaction between the teeth. I don't understand Algodoo on that deep of a level I guess. :rolleyes:
It's 10/10 O'clock :lol: :lol: :lol:
This is the first good scene in a while! :lol:
Lol, Google translates "squirl" to "tourbilloner"... Sounds related

Tourbilloner Mortel
I don't know what you mean by "squirl" translates to "tourbilloner" :huh:
The name I used for the watch is "Ecureuil Mortel"
which is French for "Lethal Squirrel"
If squirl translated to tourbilloner for you I think it's just some kind of crazy coincidence that I didn't realize

I know lol, just wanted to see if there was any translation for squirl. since, you know... that's your other username... it IS a coincidence though.

Btw, I still keep seeing your Cherry MX models going around. Saw one on Hackaday the other day, literally a screenie from algodoo :lol:
Oh I know, it's hilarious! I saw one at Best Buy. Logitech was using it in a demo comparing it to their switches. It's so funny to me considering I got the design wrong, and made it in algodoo without making the fix joints invisible.

very well work!:D

But i think i figured out why it has 1 minute delay, its a bit to slow i measured the time the clock needs for 15 seconds, it needed ~19,05.
but its different between other systems
