Nice job. I’m going to have a go.One circuit improvement could be to use an ESP8266, ntp and geolocation to set your clock.You can do away with the rtc, and it automatically sets itself to the correct time as soon as it is connected to the wifi.look here for an example of how to do it. https://github.com/myk3y/AutoClock
Ping Pong Ball LED Clock
I just built an A2-sized one for under $600, but you can buy a small cnc chassis for about $100-200 on AliExpress or Banggood, buy a 5W laser diode for about $100, and a controller for as little as $50 and be off and running.Fun!
genius!I’ve just built a small laser engraver that was designed for cutting cardboard for making 3D models - you’ve just given me a whole new range of projects to play with.Thanks and voted!

I love your clock! But, in the spirit of improvement, I think you could simplify and make it better by replacing the Arduino, rtc and BT unit with an ESP8266 or ESP32, use geolocation for time setting and ntp for time accuracy. Also, you do t need an Android app, by using the ESP you can access and control by web control from the ESP’s built in web server.I love your animations. Your clock is colourful, intriguing and inspiring.I don’t have a 3D printer. Or access to one, but I do have a laser cutter which I’m going to use to try and make something similar.Have a look at my geolocation ntp code, see if you think it can improve your clock: https://github.com/myk3y/AutoClockBravo!
how do you manage time offset for local geo?
