Process & Procedure

[Outline your approach to the project. What steps did you take to design, model, sketch, and prototype this projects? What ideas did you generate and how did you refine or reject them? How did you use cutting, etching, scoring? What challenges were encountered and how did you resolve them? Include photos of prototypes, redesigned sketches, design worksheets, and failed trails.]

I first researched many clocks to get inspiration, as I have never designed a clock before. Once I had an idea, I sketched several variations on the clock until I had a design that I really liked. When modelling the clock, I ran into a few issues and tweaked the design slightly so that it would be possible to laser cut the design. I then cut the main piece of the clock out of a six millimeter wood and the numbers out of a three millimeter acrylic. The first time I cut the wood piece it got a little burnt and messed up in some areas and a few of the acrylic numbers broke so I had to cut them out again.
