Thank you for reporting that. Actually, there is a model called "Component 1" in the Component tree and it is a duplicate of the Decorative Edge model. It should either be turned off (un-check it) or you can delete it altogether. After it is un-checked or deleted, all will be well.

Only these three components should be active/visible in the component tree and in the 3D view:
- Base Limit
- Center Fill
- Decorative Edge

I'm sorry for the confusion. I don't recall why I didn't delete "Component 1" before submitting the distribution files, nor can I explain why no one has reported this before. Lots of people have made the clock, but none reported the duplicate component. Almost makes me think I did at least un-check it, but maybe it gets re-checked when opened in newer software versions somehow? Unlikely - but I have to blame something besides me! :D

That will work because that just combines (merges) the duplicate with the "keeper". Since the two models are identical, the merge is effectively "invisible". This gives the visual impression of a single model component.

In any case, I am very happy you are good to go! Thanks again for your feedback.
