There were no numbers on the STOLPA clock and I wanted to help my young kids read time. This hack adds 3D printed numbers to the clock. It took a couple hours to design the numbers with a CAD program and a few more to 3D-print them. The only cost (besides the clock) was for PLA filament which was less than 10$.
Designing the numbers was the hardest part. Printing was easy. Once you have your numbers printed, glue them on the clock and you’re done.
