As a 'newby' to printing i have so far found the process relatively easy and straight forward, the snags i have come across are my lack of experience, i look forward to completing the 'TBT' and see it working. Fantastic project, keep up the good work, have you considered developing a 'spiral lift/elevator' as another addition ?
My son and I ran across this and thought it looked cool. He has been after something like this to use his marbles he already had with. Was a bit disappointed when I printed the first piece and seen they were so small that nothing he already had would work. Had I read a little further before buying, we would have known that, but since weve finished one of the setups, he still loves it.
Had quite the adventure getting these printed, but the majority of that is where I tried to use the Quad to add color patterns to the pieces and make it look neat. The color mix didnt work out like i hoped so had to reprint again in a single color on my other setup.
The designs though are great, and will probably start printing another set of these shortly, once I do some more tuning on my printer to take care of a few of the smaller issues I had.
A project both fun to build and fun to watch...I had a few questions of the designer to which I got prompt and helpful responses
I am impressed by the quality of the design. Everything fits together perfectly. Hours of fun changing modules and watching them.
There is just the exit of the Triple Twister where the marble may escape when it arrives too fast (descent from the left propeller) . You have to add extra filament with a 3D pen to avoid escapes.
My two year olds jaw dropped when he saw the video of this. It brings me so much joy building these sets for him to play with. He’s excited for the final hardware to arrive so we can turn it on for the first time. These models are beautifully designed and well worth the price
