Here is a picture of the rotating chain lift, or should i say where it should go. I had to remove it to strengthen the track it sits on and also get behind to fit some of the paths :)

Awesome! It looks like you can walk into it!
Is the view better from inside?

Found a way to get a photo of it, using a fish eye lense! Im going to get a new camera/video camera for the final photos/video.

On a side note, i am going to make a video of the entire machine as normal. But i am also thinking of uploading a series of videos talking through some of the elements and the design principles behind the machine, what to do people think?
