In the Marble Machine X, the marbles needs to be divided into rows of 8 before entering the Fish Stair. I have been thinking about how to achieve this for along time and this week i came up with what i think is the most space efficient solution. And also a cool looking feature and one that does not use a lot of parts. In this video i am prototyping the Divide by 8 and Modeling the 3D-printed parts in Fusion 360. Enjoy! Martin
This is the Magnet "Midi" Music Programming System that i have in mind for the Marble Machine X right now! However, there might be room for improvement or an easier/ faster way to achieve this that i did not think of, let me know in the replies of the top comment!
For the first time in the Marble Machine X build we have some gears meshing, and they are SMOOTH! In this episode i am making the two big 128 tooth programming wheel gears and attach them to the programming wheel skeleton. The esthetics and looks of the MMX is really turning out the way i want it, it made me quite happy when i first saw these gears on the machine.
There is actually some painting in this episode as well!
Hey we found a solution to the problem of the magnetized marbles for the Marble Machine X! This demagnetizer / degausser is purely mechanical, just what i hoped for. By using disc magnets, with the polarities arranged in an alternate pattern we can very effectively demagnetize the marbles by letting them enter and exit the alternating magnetic field.
In this episode i am transforming the garage into my dream Marble Machine X Workshop. This was something i have been looking forward to do since the very first time i saw the house in France.
In a big project like MMX there is so much more to do than the actual build, like getting a place to be, order material, order new material since the first stuff was wrong, order new material again since the second stuff didnt arrive and so on. I am trying to balance the time im spending on preparing t...
