2.8.2020, Drawings OM10!

We are working as quickly as possible, even slower than expected. The detailed drawings of the OM10 manual winding movement have been created, we are now in the phase of checking all drawings and tolerances. We are also preparing the prototype phase. As a reminder, openmovement does not only want to publish drawings, but drawings of a tested movement. New documents are accessible to registered "users" and "members".

The OM10 project goes forward. The construction is more or less complete, and it is time to let some parts become reality. That’s why we are starting our 3D-Print-Challenge “Print the Winder”. To participate, you have to be a registered “user” (look at joint and participate on the top). More informations you will find in the forum.

We are making good progress. The "Project" section on the web site - only for registered users - has been updated, and there are two small video clips on Vimeo that give an insight into the OM10 and OM20 movements.
