Telling Time, Unconventionally

There are quite a few things that you can do with laser cutting technology, such as make a clock with different customizations. Mark for example is focusing on making a clock that uses the alphabet in order to tell time. In order to start this project, he has to create a digital file for the enclosure which allows the parts to be laser cut. Mark picked out bamboo and acrlyic as they aren’t conductive and are therefore safe for use in an electronic product.

Key Takeaways:

  • Instead of showing numbers, Mark Wilson’s clock will read FIFTEEN TO TEN or TEN O FIVE.
  • He uses bamboo and acrylic because they are attractive, affordable and non-conductive.
  • In one of his latest projects, Mark is creating a clock that tells the time using Roman numerals.

“While Mark’s electronics project boxes just happen to enclose clocks, the same principles apply for laser cutting any kind of enclosure for electronics.”
