For some time now, I've accumulated several libraries and technologies on my list of things to try out. Someday. Whenever I can find the time. Which is probably - well, someday never comes. So I decided to make up my own "fun" project and stuff many of the things I wanted to try out into it.

Assembling this model is fairly easy, but getting it to work took some time. Tuning the spring mounting as suggested by the instructions didn't work for me - I had to actually lower the left-hand part of the tracks by 15 mm for the marbles to be able to reach the top of the ramp.

I made two mistakes while building this model: I misplaced a few parts (that was fixed rather easily) and I misjuged the overall height of the model when setting up the camera. Hence, in the timelapse, unfortunately you can't see the top of the model being built.

This model was relatively easy to assemble, but there's a catch - literally: Unless all of the parts of the stair slide smoothly past each other, the push rods will start to bend, which is obviously not good.
