Marble run plans complete

Well after lots of screwing around in Autodesk Inventor I finally have the final plan drawn up for the marble run portion of the machine.

I have also made a major change to my expected overall design, making it a much flatter design, making for simpler parts and less supports needed.

I started just doing one small portion of the mechanism i decided to call the dripper because it "drips" marbles, from this i also had a go at running dynamic simulations and managed to run and test the "dripper" and render a video of how it went.

More recently I have also rendered an image of the whole setup (without the cabinet, pivots ect) and can be found HERE (my thumbnail generator is not working properly)

I have printed out templates for all of the pieces and plan on cutting these out as MDF templates some time next week.
