There were no numbers on the STOLPA clock and I wanted to help my young kids read time. This hack adds 3D printed numbers to the clock. It took a couple hours to design the numbers with a CAD program and a few more to 3D-print them. The only cost (besides the clock) was for PLA filament which was less than 10$.
IKEA items used:
- STOLPA Clock
Other materials and tools:
- 3D printed numbers
- 3D printer (or access to 3D printing service)
Designing the numbers was the hardest part. Printing was easy. Once you have your numbers printed, glue them on the clock and you’re done.

Form and Function wanted a bright, fun clock for the pop-art inspired home office they decorated (a previous IKEA Hacker post), but didn’t find anything they really liked. After making curtains and pillows from IKEA fabric, they had some left over and thought it would be the perfect pattern on the clock. See more.
