Overall I am happy with how this project turned out. The finished clock ended up being very close to how I originally envisioned it. This project has opened my eyes to the speed and precision of laser cutting and its applications when creating prototypes and even finished products. The most valuable things I have taken away from this project are a familiarity with Fusion 360 and the ability to edit and use DXF files for laser cutting.
One thing I could have done differently was not limiting my design as much during my modelling and fabrication processes. Looking back, it would have been interesting to possibly add a backboard behind the ball. I thought about this but did not implement it because I was afraid it would not work. I could have modeled the backboard and tried to use it. Then, if it didn't work when fabricating, I could have just omitted in and went on without it.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
