In addition to 3D printed parts, you need 4.5mm steel marble and three 2mm plexiglass square: 56mm, 85mm and 110mm.

This is very cool. How many marbles will be needed to build this?

Approximately 600 marbles.

Thanks, for the answer. Meanwhile I did search the net and found this interesting page: http://www.packomania.com/
When looking for the marbles I discovered that 4.5 mm are a very good choice, as you can get them as low-cost ammunition (for airguns I suppose) instead of the much more expensive ball bearing balls. Good thing I did order 1500. The smaller packs would have been 500 :^)
I'll post the make when it's ready.

Yes, this is why I chose them. I look forward to see your build :D
