Rebuild? Why? - Marble Machine X #142

A lot of REAL progress this week! I thought it was high time that i tried to give you all some context on why i am doing this major redesign that i am working on right now. Im presenting one theory that might explain the motivation behind the decision to do this redesign. Perhaps the Marble Machine X itself is the Local Maximum, in that case, the current process will lead me to that discovery and i will take another u-turn to find the path to the world tour. Probably i will take the advice that has been given to me so many times during the past years: "Why dont you just play guitar?"
:) Hope you all are are having a great day and enjoy everyone! ;) / Martin

      @Wintergatan Hi Martin, You're now reaching epic levels of failure rates with the grinder! ;-) People in the comments below are talking about 6 Sigma standards. I'd also mention that you've reached the stratosphere-- you're now talking about aeronautical design levels of failure. See also ideas about "redundancy" in design and "fault tolerance." Airplane safety statistics might also be helpful to get a grasp of how to pinpoint design durability and weakness. Keep striving for excellence!

      If you had to approach a completely different, but equally complex machine build project in the future, knowing what you have learned along the way, what would you do differently? Seems to me that you might invest more time testing single prototypes of a sub-mechanism before iterating them across the machine itself - that is, for example, build one marble dropper, and test it with a million marble drops. Then you're only fixing one thing, rather than fixing 20 of the same thing, only to find that the fix isn't sufficient. I'm not saying I would do better myself (in fact I know I wouldn't - I simply lack the patience for this scale and complexity of engineering), and it's also less exciting and less fulfilling to be just testing components, instead of seeing the machine emerge of course. Hope this doesn't come across as critique - I'm actually just interested to know how your methodologies have changed across the course of the project.

    Martin- I've missed quite a few episodes. But, I had a thought after your Captain Context vid: Are you treating the wooden parts to reduce the impact of humidity? A couple of decades ago, we use to make our robot chassis from plywood. We did our work in Ohio but the competition was at EPCOT in Florida. To avoid the plywood swelling from absorbing water due to the high humidity, we painted the chassis with several coats. Is there a coating on your plywood parts? Maybe it won't be an issue with your smaller parts.

    This calls for an intervention. Somebody get him out of the shed? Feels like current circumstances take a heavy toll on artists. Nothing wrong with focusing on details but this turns more and more into an unhealthy obsession - called perfecting yourself to death. It's not worth going insane over this.

    Someday you'll need some magnetic polarized balls repelling to each other to avoid some noise .. or mechanism .. try adding alternated magnet binaries .. if they repels each other there is no reasonable motives to the marble to get stocked .. cause it will flow by magnet repulsion almoust for about forever..

    Piano Technician here, I would advise against using Graphite Powder. In pianos it is useful for the short term, but eventually it gums up. Some "technicians" use graphite so much that it ends up everywhere, and those parts need to be cleaned or replaced because the friction becomes unmanageable. Instead I would recommend using Teflon powder, very sparingly.

    An alternative to graphite is High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) . It's like a low-friction plastic material that should be pretty easy to machine.

    I think your math is off. If you do something 100 times with a 99% success rate, than you have 0.99^100 = 0.366 chance of it working. Obviously not good enough, but that's still not 100% chance of one failure. A 99.99% success rate 3600 times is 69.76%. Increasing success rate by a single nine gives you 96.46%! If you want to play the machine ten times a day with a >95% success rate (less than one failure a month), you need each individual operation to have a 99.9999% success rate. Which is probably beyond standard engineering. NASA quotes figures like 99.74% success rates for engines. Have you considered finding ways to recover gracefully from a failure?

Around 2011 I took an angle grinder to the back and was cutting out redundant brackets from 1993. It was bad/good feeling. It was waaay better for it. *At the moment I am making a Mamod steam car into a Gscale rail car. I will have a small box of prototype parts that each took hours to make. :O

    Not gonna lie. I don’t care about any sort of reason. I’m not gonna stick around for someone to rebuild the same thing over and over and over and over again. Been here for years now. Watching you do this so many times is just monumentally disappointing. Keep screwing yourself, the people who help you, and your fans. Just finish the machine dude. Probability and what actually will happen can be two entirely different things. But oh well. Just milk a Patreon for years with no finished product.

    Well your probability math is a bit poor there but okay, u can't really say u have a 99% stability rate based on 100 marbles, that is not a dynamic probability. What you are looking for is stability, meaning a 99.9% probability for each marble to go through the system successfully, if after this you can start calculating using the probability of instance 1, and put the number of attempts as a power of. Probability of a marble stopping within 3584 time(s) at 99.9% probability = 0.9993584 = 0.027714675751556 = 2.77% So at 99.9% you'd actually have a 2.77% failure rate for each time you played the song, that is more than acceptable.

If you discuss this first on NLcameras before act, I will advise you to make an MMX version, finish your work in stages, don't destroy what you have previously made, make a new one that is better without destroying the old one. nothing is perfect, perfect is respecting imperfection But I respect your decision. Just don't get discouraged Martin. I hope the best for you!

    So this is what I'm wondering... Isn't the likelihood of a master musician missing a note greater than 0.00001%? And isn't the likelihood of a string failing on a guitar greater as well? It's starting to feel like you're chasing precision that might actually be unachievable. The Lego company has some of the most accurate and precise manufacturing of any factory in the world, and 18 out of 1 000 000 pieces are faulty. That's 0.0018%, that's a lower precision than you are aiming for with the MMX. You are building a machine at least partially by hand with the goal of it having higher precision than some of the most sophisticated machines in the world. I'm worried that your unwillingness to compromise could make the completion of the MMX impossible. I admire the dedication, but this is the first time watching these videos that I've truly felt that you might be aiming towards the unachievable.

    I love what you've done and what you're doing!! It's so much more than a build - it's instructive. My son is currently embroiled in a senior project at university. It's a device that four students conjured up in a spitball session and now they're tasked with building it. It has electronic and mechanical components but I'm convinced that the lesson is elsewhere - the lesson is the human components and learning to usher resources. The likelihood of a device that four kids agreed to build based on an hour spitballing ideas will work is slim to none and not really important. I concluded this having watched our eldest go through a similar "senior project" at another university. It was, by my estimate, not successful as a product, but what his team learned about engineering and management was priceless. Thanks again for all you do!!!

    this whole project is proof that engineering and art can coexist also i'm from chicago, i have no idea if it's actually a 'chicago' or 'boston' screw, but apology accepted anyway also also, if you look briefly at the history of machines moving really fast, before the industrial revolution there was no real concept of machinery failing through normal use. things didn't move fast, you didn't have a part that was being used hundreds if not thousands of times a second. so when things started breaking on the big expensive new machines it took a collective brain blast from engineers to figure out what was happening. you basically went through all of that independently. i went to engineering school, i'm not even sure if that's where i learned about the problem. if it was they mentioned it like once and never again. the biggest breakthroughs of the past have become so common that they aren't even considered important enough to be common knowledge

    Ok, I get why you are using water - to keep your bits cool. But why not Cutting Oil (the stuff you use when your tapping Threads) ? Water can lead to rusting (if you are using Iron), but tapping Oil tends to really cut down on friction, is great at cutting holes too. Sure you have to degrease after words, but still Water can be hard on drill bits.

    as for ur diatribe re global maximum/local maximum, u spent a great deal of time reciting info/math that doesnt matter. the bottom line is, examining any musical instrument. They all work perfectly. PERFECT. saxophone? every time u press a key, it opens the right amount and closes the same way, every single time. guitar, same. trombone, same, violin, it doesnt matter. the beauty is how perfect they work. the side affect is, how easy it is to determine the value by how well it is built and the material used. but the design is the same, and remains unchanged. this also isolates any variations in sound quality, is a result of the amount of skill/talent of the musician. the beauty of ur marble machine is due to the dichotomy of how complex it is, while still being able to create awesome sound. but, therein lays the problem. IT IS COMPLEX. meaning there is chance of mistakes during assembly, or maintenance, or accidental impact, and not being able to ID what might have been impacted, and or causing more damage by not being diagnosed properly then getting used more and more but, asis abundantly apparent, the creation of music is not the primary achievement. the design/assembly is as much of marvel as you cranking on a lever and pressing/pulling on levers and buttons all of it is evertainment, proving reliefaaaaaa to me and many others and for that, I thank you

    oh no. no no graphite powder is awesome, but not on unfinished / raw wood. if friction is a concern, you should have done a couple different things. over cut the slots, then install a low friction material where the metal parts slide on the low friction material. or, you can sand the slots, by working thru the sand paper grits, up to the highest grit you want. maybe 1000g? or, u can again sand the slots/grooves, but no need to go upward of 220g sandpaper. Then apply a few coats of sanding sealer, lacquer base. (dont let the name, 'lacquer' scare u off. This is the easiest material to apply and get awesome results. It will also penetrate deeply and allow super easy sanding. after a few coats of lacquer you can apply a few coats of wax car polish This will give u the best low resistance surface possible. the graphite is messy as you now know. but the bigger problem is that it will GUNK UP. it will get moist, attract oils, water, and gum up, creating a bigger problem whereas wax wont have any problem, except the chance of over maintenance, which can be fixed relatively quickly/easy. anyways, good luck

    Hey Martin. Professional Software Engineer here. The 99.999+% case you are making also applies in Software Design. However, at some point, failure WILL happen. Even if you have optimised here 99.9999999% failure WILL happen. This is why you also should consider Resilience, or the ability how to deal with failure. For example, Tesla cars have a complete redundant computer system. In case one fails, the other will take over. (the same applies to their sensors) I don't know how to apply the resiliency principle to your project, however, only considering "failure resistance" might not be enough.

    Made a joke last year that I can't wait till 2031 when it finally will be complete. Now it's starting to look like I was being a little eagar, I'm pushing it back to 2035...

    you could make so the machine auto fixes itself, when a marble is stuck it could be released out of the way.

    I find putting a wrecking ball to personal work for redesign is refreshing. I'm a programmer and do this often. My best work is done when something is lost and I have the replace it using what I learned to my advantage.

    Good time to add a 1 or two octave virginal? 3D print some biotin to pluck strings, and build a rolling mechanism with per key enabling levers that drive an open clutch accept when programming tabs turn the adjusted cogs for a pluck? :-)

      Actually, why is the inside wheel empty? Wish there were a 2 octave harp in the middle. Or, just a click track generator driven by gravity, the biggest marble of all, and programmed on the inside of the wheel...

    Tip regarding graphite that may be useful in normal life for people who aren't building a world class musical instrument... or maybe even if you are. If you have a key that's difficult to insert. It's probably the LOCK itself... but rubbing a pencil (the higher the B rating the better, but HB (#2) works) on the key and inserting a few times, maybe repeat the rubbing ... will last months. The difference is remarkable :)

    Martin - You sound so much better. A month ago or so, I was so worried about your mental state. Hearing your voice this time is reassuring that you're ok. I think you're trying to achieve as much perfection as possible however you need to design the machine to be able to handle faults. I think that is the key to your whole design. It can't be all or nothing. If you lose a marble somewhere....no one will notice. If that one marble destroys your machine, everyone will notice lol. So my advice for you is to identify the spots that need fail safes and design it to survive it. It may take more time but it will be worth it in the end. Keep your head high and keep designing the best machine you can. Don't give up.

    One quick tip for capturing angle grinder sparks is to use a vacuum. If you have enough suction it'll capture most of the sparks as you grind or cut. Have been following you since day one...Keep up the dream!
