C3Jr 3D Printed Stand

It’s been a while….

Having played with 3D printers for a bit now, I thought it would be a good idea to elevate my C3Jr clock a little and make a stand for it. I recently put together a Prusa i3 MK2 printer from a kit, and it’s Open Source at its best! To break it in, I used it to make the stand! This would help with not only keeping the clock more secure (if it’s a desktop clock) but also add a little flair to the C3Jr. It’s nothing too fancy, but I think it turned out OK. The print was a 50% honeycomb infill to give it some strength and the STL file will be available on our GitHub in the usual place. Enjoy! Any questions, then shoot us an email. 

Chronogram2 – A Modern Timepiece

If you’re at all familiar with the C3Jr (which you should be given you’re reading the WyoLum blog..;-), then you may know about it’s larger sibling the Chronogram2. Originally offered as part of the Kickstarter campaign, it’s two C3Jr’s combined to tell time minute by minute in glorious fashion. Here’s how to put one together (see attached PDF)!
