Semi/sorta got it Michael:)
Leave it to a 3D designer to make a 3 piece sphere with 24(?) (A LOT!!) of playing faces :D
Have to play it to go...AHA! :)
Cocobolo....Must be hefty little sucker for it's size:)

Think I'll got back to looking for Anasazi "cliff dwellings" 3D models for firewood(So Buddha Cave has an option:)
Even that's straining the gray cells today:)

I use a metal ball bearing,
There are small magnets inset at the beginning and end of the maze...

I guess "Losing your bearings" IS a Little better than "Losing your marbles" :wink:
Good idea on the embedded magnet Michael:)

Neat design Michael. Would be useful for training hand/eye coordination! Would love to purchase the plans for it if you put it up on your website. :D

I doubt that i would sell the file because the overridding item is the diameter of the ball used..
I think I'll just post the DXF files of the 3 circles , with a video of how they go together, and my version of the maze, here for free..
Stay tuned.

Thanks for all the noce commects.
