Ok, lets start by deleting the default cube, then add a cylinder and rotate it along the X axis 90 degrees.

FIG 1fig1

Now add a cube and drag it to the end of the cylinder( the end that is facing the front) and scale it so it looks like in figure 2

Now go down to the spin and spin dup settings and change the degrees to 330, the steps to eleven and the turns to 1.

Now you can press spin dup, this will copy the mesh 11 times in a circle.

You will now have something that looks like a clock, so just add the pointers and materials and youre done.

You can make something like this:

Or this:

And if you put some time into the materials and the model, you can make a realistic clock or something else without too much work.

Thank you for reading, please leave a comment :)
