Deep Well 6: A Tranquil Marble Run for Your Workspace or Kids

Introducing the Deep Well 6, a minimalist and calming gravity well marble run designed to bring a touch of Zen to your workspace. This simple, yet elegant model is perfect for those moments when you need a mental break, offering a gentle and soothing experience as marbles gracefully flow around the outer edge of the dish as they make their way towards the center. Whether you're making this for adults or kids, everyone will be mesmerized, watching the marbles roll their way around the gentle sloping well.

✨ We also just launched a new Patreon subscription for anyone wants to support these projects or sell the physical prints. 

Features:

  • Simple Design: The Deep Well 6 features a sleek and minimalist design that complements any work environment.
  • Tranquil Flow: Marbles gently move along the outer rim of the well, providing a peaceful and mesmerizing visual experience.
  • Easy Operation: Effortlessly pick up marbles and drop them into the well to keep the calming motion going.
  • Two Drop Options: Choose between a single marble drop for a steady, relaxing flow in a simple funnel or a use the mass-drop release to send multiple marbles at once for a more dynamic experience.

Original Print Profile Components:

  • Base: The base of the marble run features a gentle sweeping loop around the base where the marbles collect in a little basin, ready to be picked back up and dropped in to keep the moment of Zen going.
  • Main Well: The main component of the Deep Well 6, featuring a smooth, sloped dish that guides the marbles around its edge.
  • Simple Funnel: An attachment that allows you to effortlessly drop marbles into the well and starts them all at a consistent speed and direction entering the dish.
  • Mass-drop Release: An attachment that allows you to drop multiple marbles onto the dish at once, by simply pulling the release tab and watching the peaceful, yet chaotic stream of marbles make their way down to the base.

Optional Print Profiles:

Everyone has different preferences, so we will include a few different print profiles to suit what you're looking for. If you have suggestions for other print profiles, please write in the comments.

  • Larger Base Tray: This profile includes a larger tray in the base, for those that want to make it easier to grab the marbles from the bottom tray with larger hands or if you want it to hold more marbles.
  • Main Well with Integrated Funnel: If you don't want the option to switch from the simple funnel and mass-drop release attachments, then simply print this version where the funnel will be printed with the well dish.

Assembly:

 

  1. Print the Components: Print the base, main well dish, funnel attachments. Be creative with the color choices that bring the most peace to your room, office, or your kids favorite colors.
  2. Attach Well to Base: Simply push the well dish onto the top of the spiral base. This should be a snug, but easy-to-assemble fit to ensure the pieces stay attached.
  3. Attach the Drop Mechanism: Choose either the simple funnel or the mass-drop attachment to the designated holder on the side of the well.
  4. Load the Marbles: Place 8-10mm marbles into the drop mechanism.
  5. Enjoy: Sit back, release the marbles, and enjoy the soothing motion of the Deep Well 6.

Usage Tips:

  • Mental Breaks: Use the Deep Well 6 during short breaks to clear your mind and reduce stress.
  • Experiment with Marbles: Try different sizes or colors of marbles to see how they affect the flow and aesthetic of the marble run.
  • Ensure Flat Surface: For optimal motion of the marbles, ensure the surface the marble run is setting on is level.

Oh, and 6 is the number of degrees for the slope of the main well. 😊 Comment your thoughts, leave a 👍, and 🚀 if you want to see more fun toys and functional designs.

 ⚠ Small marbles can be a choking hazard for kids. Please use caution.

Easy to print and nice looking model. Is really relaxing to let marbles rotate on the plate and watch them drop in hole. I keep finding myself recovering the marbles from the bottom to restart their journey. Thanks for sharing it =)

Hey there! I’m having an issue with the trap door funnel fitting onto the well, the base and the well fit together perfectly, but even with some force the funnel won’t connect. Any ideas? I used the print profile you provided

Hello @Lukas1912 , Thank you for taking the time to rate and provide feedback on my model. I noticed you mentioned a 'strength issue' - could you please elaborate on what you experienced? This marble run toy isn't typically subject to high stress, so I'm curious to understand the problem better.
