  • I love this project and ive been watching it for years, ignoring the appearance arguments in favor of 'wait to see how it looks when its done' before forming an opinion. I dont want to sound harsh, but i dont think there is another way to say this. When these funnels were first designed and made, they were meant to sit higher with the opening facing the incoming marbles more. But over time martin squished the funnel closed and lowered them and angled them back making them worse at catching marbles. These plastic parts only seem to be undoing those changes but by adding plastic instead. if martin doesnt want to raise the funnels back up, widen the opening and angle them to face the incoming marbles, Why not redesign the funnels to match the new opening to be better at catching so that the angles all match up and flow together like they did before. These alterations are ugly, i seriously hope its just temporary as a design assist to create new metal funnels. The best solution would be to setup a camera to view the opening so you can see exactly where and how the marbles are missing, maybe simply making them wider would help. worst case just make a new funnel to catch them.

  • Why wouldn't you have the halves overlapping each other, instead of gaping apart? It wouldn't have to be a close friction fit, just enough for support to be continuous if pushed by a marble.

  • You have probably noticed how curving the material strengthens it. If you apply the same principle to the outer edge: thread a single line of wire along the outer edge and put some tension on it so that wire holds the permimeter in a shape, that will stiffen these funnel additions as well. Doing so would also enable you to curve the lower lips of the upper funnel in, and the upper lips of the lower funnel out, which will ensure capture.

  • I'd like to point out that if I went to a concert with the MMX, I would love to go home with a marble that had missed the funnels. It'd be like getting a foul ball at a baseball game.

  • An alternative for your two piece funnels that still offers the movement without the escape path: an extension spring at the base of a one piece funnel that the marbles will pass through inside. The funnel will still react with the marble impact, but there's no seam to let marbles out. You can still use the wire funnels you've spent so much time on, but just secure them closed.

  • Hey Martin! In the future when working with PET, consider this. Cut the sheets out of your bottles like you have been doing but before you cut them, place the sheets between two pieces of sheet metal and clamp it together, then use a torch or a heat gun to heat the sheet metal a bit, just enough to anneal the plastic and let it flatten out. Be careful as too much heat will melt the plastic. Then let it cool and pull it out, it should be much flatter and less likely to wiggle when you cut it!

  • I would have done the funnel front PET longer (suposing the front side is the piece you just made bigger in this episode) so it fits inside the one in the back, so that way, if a marble hits the corner of the fronts wing, it would hold in place... also, if the marble hits the back of the marble (from the inside), even if the funner opens, there's still no gap in between both PET pieces... Hard to explain I guess... XD

  • I have a concern that the material will be too thin for regular use. Your method of attaching them will likely fail with time. You will probably have to replace them after every show when on the world tour. Either the plastic will break or the string will snap. However, I do approve of reusing materials for prototyping. It may be beneficial to work with a supplier to continue using recycled materials like this. I think you are correct in your assessment. You should not give up. It has to be an iterative process. Make a thing. Test it. See what works and what doesn't. Rework the thing. Test it. See what works and what doesn't.... Repeat until you reach the desired results. It's not going to happen overnight. It's not going to happen if *you* don't get up and do it. There are no failures if you learn something from what happened. You have learned many things about how you *could* go about making this marble machine perform. Many of those methods were inaccurate and inefficient. Not necessarily bad - just not quite what is needed. Solution - Rework it and try again. How do you think that Toyota and Honda have made such a strong reputation of building stupidly reliable vehicles? Not just cars, but trucks, SUV's, vans, motorcycles, sports cars, lawnmowers, sewing machines and so on. They build a thing, rework it until it meets their quality standards, release it, get results from the public, then rework it again for the next generation. Progress is an iterative machine. Keep it going.

  • I sorry Martin, but these funnels are terrible. From an aesthetic POV. The original design was fantastic but they are overshadowed by a cheap plastic top. I know you are getting them done in another thickness but it still looks terrible having them stitched on as an afterthought. I believe to get what you ideally want, is to remake the steel cages to the height an width you need. You could also halve the amount of steel and get a great uncluttered look. The steel strands only need to be slightly narrower than a marble apart Just a strangers 2 cents

    Debadeep ChaudhuryDebadeep Chaudhury9 dagar sedan
  • If you still want to go with this thin PET version, you should be able to get better cut quality if you fix the PET between plywood sheets for the cutting, i.e. put a thin plywood sheet on top of the PET before you screw it in the CNC table and adjust the cutting depth accordingly. Of course for this to work the stack (wood-PET-wood) should be very tightly screwed down.
