Just finished a project, a 3D printed working clock. I bought the STL files from Steve Peterson and his clock website is here:

I printed SP8, the "coup perdu" although I used the optional deadbeat escapement.

It was a major project for the 3D printer with over 90 hours just in printing all the parts.

The clock has a neat feature of rewinding itself with a tiny, geared electric motor operated by a reed switch.

The completed clock. It worked right off the bat with no fettling as the part fitment was excellent. The time I spent dialing-in the 3D printer with test pieces was well worth it.



The clock running.
 
I have built Steve Peterson magnetic pendulum battery powered clock.
Clock ran on first kick.
