    Crazy clock using G.B's vector gear shapes.

    Nice one, Stygg! Are the shadows caused by the same light source? I would give the purple and pink gears another color so that they better match the other gears and the rim of the clock.

    Cheers for your kind comment Boy, actually the entire clock colours used were from a matching colour palette which are suppose to compliment each other? The light source is from 11, I set the light elevation to 7 on the red bevel so the shadow is slightly shorter at 11 the darker it goes to 5, the shadow lengthens as I've done with this shadow, mind you I could be entirely wrong about the shadows and I'm sure G.B. will correct me If you want to have a play with this clock Boy I will gladly post the xar.file

    OK Stygg please post your xar file, I'd like to mess around with it, as I have a few ideas.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.

    That really is a great use of the free gears from the Xone.

    I like it, Stygg. Does it keep accurate time?

    It sure does gray, I've linked it to the atomic clock in Switzerland. When it reaches the hour, it yodels
