It is supposed to carry marbles up. You will have to make many of these to make a chain. Once the marble reaches the top, the one side will naturally rotate around, and releasing the marble. This is my 1st object.

For printing on a makebot/reprap you will likely have some trouble with the overhangs.

You might also want to considering designing a 'filler link' so that only every other, or every third link would be able to hold a marble.

Thank you for your input. I don't have any experance with either, so I head of a little about overhangs, but not why it would fail.

Maybe some screw on circular plates for the hole. Then make the connector parts 1/2 way. Plus filler as you said. Unforutunatly, I'm working tonight.
