I hope this is the correct place to post this.
DISLAIMER: This clock is not entirely my own design.  I downloaded the plans for free.  Can't recall where, but I refuse to take credit for that which is not mine to take.
So, I downloaded the plans to a clock, and 3D modeled all the parts to produce the 3D rendering in the image below.  I am contemplating having the parts 3D printed, so that I can assemble the clock, and hope it works.

Opinions?

Go for it.

I think I recall seeing that design somewhere, but like you I cannot now recall where.

I will be watching to see how it progresses.  I appreciate the disclaimer.

I located the source, so must give proper credit where it is due.

The plans were downloaded from Brian Law's Woodenclocks.

Here is a video rendering of the clock.  It is a one minute animation demonstrating the movement of the clock.  I did as a test to make sure everything will work before investing in 3D printing.  I do have a few very slight adjustments to make before it is ready.  Part of the lifting lever is too small to catch the pins on the escapement wheel.  As I said, slight adjustment.  I also have to tweak either escapement teeth, or the star wheel slightly, as there is a high chance of seizure between the two.

Fixed the escapement problem. Here is a close up animation showing the gravity escapement in action.  In the close up, I realize, I neglected to place the trigger stop pin.  Easy fix.
