Have you ever wondered what a marble music machine would sound like? In this YouTuber video Ivan Miranda, you can learn just that. Inspired by the original Wintergatan machine, which is essentially a music box that uses balls to play instruments, Miranda makes a marble music machine from 3D printing all parts without any plans.
The Wintergatan machine usually works by lifting steel marbles through the machine into separate supply pipes. There they are then released from a predetermined height with the help of programmable release doors and the whole thing is driven by a manual crank. Then the balls fall to the ground and hit a musical instrument. In her own version, Miranda does everything from scratch and only the drum is not 3D printed. Instead, he made it from resin, along with an aluminum frame. If you want to see how he pulled out the project and how the music machine works, be sure to watch the video embedded above and, as always, enjoy!
