All the digital files to be able to make your very own 3D printed version of Infinity Trax magnetic modular magnetic marble run! This is the 'Turing Edition' which includes the powered Archimedes screw lift, so you can create tracks that loop forevers well as light up tracks, and even sections where you can record noises that replay when a marble goes over them!
So what is Infinity Trax you say? Well, it's a modular magnetic marble run that can be built (and re-built as many times as you want) on metallic vertical surfaces such as fridges or magnetic whiteboards. It's part puzzle, part STEM toy, part artwork, and a truly unique marble run with more possible track designs than there are atoms in the universe!
Due to the free form nature of track design, it transcends from 'just another marble run' to a mesmerising super-puzzle which provides endless hours of creative problem solving, imaginative play and is the toy that will be the most played with more than any other in the house.
Because making new tracks is easy and intuitive, the limiting factor to marble run glory is imagination and creativity, making it the perfect way to engage those beautiful brain cells. Don't be fooled though, simple is not the same as easy - you'll need to manage marble speed, and plan your run carefully in order to achieve true marble run greatness!
In the 'Turing Edition' are 21 unique trick and track sections with over 190 separate STL files, as well as details plans, code and guides for the Arduino based components. Everything has been tested, and waiting for you to jump in and play.
Here's the pieces you'll be able to make:
Included in the download is a full 16 page set of instructions with links to build guide videos, as well as a detailed read-me section which has tips on best practices for 3D printing your track.
You'll need to buy magnets, as well as some glue and other small items to make your track. I made a shopping list which will be included with your download so you'll be able to get everything you need to make your marble run.
In addition the cost for materials for the Archimedes screw lift section is approx $29 if you shop on Amazon, and around $15 if you use aliexpress. You will also need to use a soldering iron to be able to make the Archimedes screw lift.
To make the 'Turing Edition' you'll get a shopping list for bits you'll need to purchase from the (insanely awesome) tinycircuits.com. The cost for the electronics required for the LED track section is $25, and the cost for the Audio track section is around $55. Links to the pieces you need to purchase will be provided, along with instruction on how to upload your Arduino sketch to your finished part. You don't need a soldering iron to be able make the LED or Audio track sections, but some prior knowledge of Arduino would be helpful, or willingness to learn if not.
You'll also need to buy magnets, glue and grip paint. Expect to pay around $0.60 for the magnets for each track section if you shop on Amazon, and around $0.25 per track if you use somewhere linke aliexpress.
There's detailed 3D printing guides, along with an 18 page booklet giving you tips for best practices on how to create awesome tracks, as well as links to build guide videos.
In order to be able to make this, you will need a 3D printer with a bed size of 20x20x20cm
