I got the bottom ball up,

But you have basicly made it impossible because the pink goal area is smaller than the opening. So when the balls come to rest a small part will be outside the goal.

Looks a bit too much like it was designed not to work ;-)

A few issues that spring to mind...
- Huge vertical offscreen build area. this might be usable to actually produce a solution (perhaps using a winch), but building complex stuff offscreen is a bit too annoying.
- Goal area does not cover the pit fully, on the left side of it, so keeping pieces in the goal (if you can even get them there) = hard.
- 2 balls at the top that are rolling into the goal right away are kind of pointless because there's very little you can do to interact with them before they hit the goal anyway.

This any better? I didn't realise I had messed up the goal area, and it turns out I had posted the wrong version anyhow.

I hate starting topics for no reason, so I will just post it here:

Is this design possible? http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=387320

I am trying to drag a chain through the ground...

Pretty sure the chain will always break. The only time I've seen that sort of thing work, the ground was thinner. It'd be a tough balance to get it to where the chain won't stick on the ground, but won't break either.

As for the OP of this thread, I messed with it a bit, but designing in the clouds sucks too much.
