Printed well enough for me on PLA, however finding the right marbles to fit was a big challenging. Ended up using a small knife to carve out the inside diameters a bit and sand paper to polish/smooth out. Result was great.

This certainly prints and works well enough, but if your print bed is less that 200mm (as my XYZPrinting da Vinci 2.0 Duo is) then you have to print it standing upright and as a result you lose an enormous volume of plastic for the supports for all 3 pieces at once is enormous. With thick shells, 1mm layers, and solid infill it cost me 0.782KG of PLA.
I strongly recommend that you use ABS on a 200mm x 200mm print bed for printing this as the marble support center falls apart in PLA and the top and bottom as well as the Mable holder require 6 times the plastic of the 3 items just for supports. It's great, but print each piece laying flat and print each of the 3 parts individually or accept losing most of your 1KG plastic spool for the required supports alone.
