Hi Maker, We are proud to present our new project. “EPOXY RESIN LED CLOCK”. 

Hi Maker, We are proud to present our new project. “EPOXY RESIN LED CLOCK”. 


Before you start, What is epoxy? Epoxy resin is known for its strong adhesive qualities, making it a versatile product in many industries. It offers resistance to heat and chemical applications, making it an ideal product for anyone needing a strong hold under pressure. Epoxy resin is also a durable product which can be used with various materials, including: wood, fabric, glass, china or metal.

This project was a first. There's no other place. And now we have presented it to you. We had some epoxy. We thought what we could use it for. We did a little research and found that there wasn't an epoxy clock. We have designed. We print. We combined it with RGB. and we have brought this unique project to you.

This project also used the addressable WS2812B led. In order to show you that we used 60 LED in 1 meter for hours and 144 LED in 2 meters for minutes and seconds. Of course, arduino nano is our everything. It is a brain.

This project is divided into 3 parts. Parts;

1- Materials and Electronic Design

2- Making Epoxy

3- Assemble and Showtime

And no more words. Ladies and Gentlemen Please Welcome “EPOXY RESIN LED CLOCK”
