Video here> https://youtu.be/pKpG-_HSO64

I posted in another Thread and rather than hijack that one I will copy and past here. This print ran about 22 hours, The 3D Marble machine as > http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1340784
turned out pretty nice. The designer did an awesome job in the layout and details. No issues.

Blue is PETG, the two gray parts are ABS.

Thanks, I guess I need to edit my post so the You Tube link makes sense. I did need to cut apart a new ball bearing to get the 8 mm balls used for marbles.

No support and mine was printed, the blue anyway with PETG, the gray / silver is ABS. Sliced with S3D. My grandson loves it and I even showed him how to take apart and put back together so he can learn.
