In the Marble Machine X, the marbles needs to be divided into rows of 8 before entering the Fish Stair. I have been thinking about how to achieve this for along time and this week i came up with what i think is the most space efficient solution. And also a cool looking feature and one that does not use a lot of parts. In this video i am prototyping the Divide by 8 and Modeling the 3D-printed parts in Fusion 360. Enjoy! Martin
Here is a fish stair Marble Machine In action if you want clarification: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enDoM-rbLc4 This one lifts one marble per step, MMX will lift 16 marbles per step, two rows of steps, to achieve the needed 8 Marble Per crank turn feedrate! So we can play darude sandstorm on the MMX, it needs a lot of marbles for the dududududududududududu part
If you want to support:
The fact that you are watching the videos and care about the music and future of Wintergatan is the best support anyone can have, I want to thank everyone who is here for that kind of support, it is really the fuel for the Wintergatan Engine.
If you apart from that further want to support the projects, we have these different options set up:

Why do we accept support in this way?
I, Martin, can already sustain myself 100% doing what I love to do. If you want to support artists/organisations who have not yet reached that privileged position, please consider supporting other artists/organisations who need the support more. With that said, I have too many ideas and too little time and with your support I can get more help from people around me to execute the ideas better and bring them out in the world faster.
