Ye Utensil and Plate Clock

Time modelling: 1 hour 15 minutes
Software: trueSpace Workspace, version 7.61 Beta 8

Inspiration:
I got this idea from the Denver Museum of Science. There were several 'repurposed' computer
parts, converted into clocks. One was a full motherboard; another was a cd. There were also
floppy disks, disk drives, etc. I Soooooo wanted one but they were pretty pricey. But VERY cool.
I originally wanted to create a 3d model of a motherboard but realized I didn't have time for it, for
this SMC. So, a much simpler idea came to mind - the use of utensils and a plate as a clock. 8-)
I want to pay homage to our very good friend Norm, by using the code he created, in the Scripting a Clock course. I'd like to make that happen. And, put CrazyBob in the scene, looking at the clock, checking the time.

Nerf Foam Safety Nails

TS 7.6 model side. Lightworks render.
Model time: about an hour. The bend tool baffles me sometimes.

Don't worry about the corners on the block. It is Nerf foam too.
