I just posted my 3D printed clock to the contest

https://hackaday.io/project/163814-3d-printed-pendulum-clock

I am quite pleased with the latest refinemen ts allowing an 8 day runtime with 4.5 pounds of weight.  The gears and escapemen t were all designed using Gearotic.

Thanks Art,

The pallets are gold colored PLA, but the shadows do make it look a bit like bent plywood.
