This marble machine has a tipping container that hold up to 1030 marbles which will be released all at the same time when the container is full. Then the 1030 marbles will race down the tracks with colorful obstacles. A lifting system will transport the marbles back to the top. There are also two smaller tipping containers which will drop marbles over a nail board and a spiral track. It is now displayed inside the NEMO science museum in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. This museum attract thousands of people per day.
This Marble Machine is made mostly from MDF and pine wood. The tracks itself is made from MDF, the supports are from pine wood. Only the lifting guiding rails and poles are from aluminium.

Over the past two months, my son and I have watched this somewhere around 100 times. Love it every time. We are getting a little marble obsessed in this house as well… My son wants a bedroom just like yours :)
uw kunst is geweldig, we hebben echt genoten na je werk!
