That's amazing :D

I can't believe someone has managed to train cats - the closest I've got is being trained by cats...

It depends just on how you treat the beasts.

 

Sorry for the lack of new marble runs. During a very hard rain my hobby room got flooded (beside the complete basement) and I need to take a long pause on tinkering. And I see I have not been here for months. Oh, my god. Didn't notice it really.

Steph, do you still have the idea of modular marble runs? Maybe this collection of definitions can serve you as a foundation for your own ideas: Definitions for a Ping Pong Module Contraption. For other sizes you need to adapt the figures, of course. 1" = 25.4 mm.

Oh no!  Sorry about your basement.  Not good.  

That's neat that each person could bring a module and the team can assemble it and --  voila! -- a marble run.  Yes, probably a good idea for me considering my space available.

Anybody can bring as much as (s)he likes. If you need some ideas for modules you might want to take a deep breath and have some looks at youtube search topic 'GBC' (Great Ball Contraption)

And this is ours (not so much artworked as the GBCs):

Hope you enjoy it! Maybe you make some together with your friends? Or at the next marble collectors convention?
