Motorized Marble Run

Original marble run designed by Tulio Laanen

In this project we’ll show you how to light up your marble run and motorize it with an Adafruit Crickit.

The tracks are fully 3d printed and designed by Tulio Laanen – It uses a worm style elevator to lift ball bearings up the tracks.

The Adafruit Crickit drives a gearbox DC motor to turn the elevator.
LEDs strips illuminate the tracks and animate different effects.

You can also use the on-board sensors trigger other components like servos, solenoids or even electromagnets.
