Scene tag

A very accurate clock driven by one motor.

--Press enter to start the clock, and enter again to pause the clock.--

I'm planning to add a pendulum system to it, so it will be a 'real' clock!:lol:

Have Phun (or algodoo, whatever..)

It uses a Geneva Wheel Mechanism, which is also used in Davidz' clocks, but I came up with this idea a long time ago, before I saw his clocks.:)

Quite accurate, but.. You can make it a bit better easily. Some gears are placed a bit too tightly, and some of them doesn't have braking motors to keep them from random moving. I could consider using gears with at least 6-8 teeth since smaller are very inaccurate.
Btw it could be nice if you write in description that geneva wheel clock mechanism came from me :rolleyes:
That geneva wheel mechanism was completely my idea. Well, I was apparently not the first one, but in this case it was my idea of using a geneva wheel in this way. :*)
I was checking some of the default scenes, with this geneva wheel lesson. I developed an timer, or stopwatch or whatever, and out of this stopwatch I created this clock 'hour/minute/second'-mechanism. :lol:
I really had no idea you used this principle as well.:) I'm sorry...

And thanks for the tip about the smaller gears, but it makes the calculations much more difficult!:| But I'll give it a try!:D
Very good :tup: ! 10/10 I am from Germany:*)
