This uses a bug : the blue rods should not go through the background...

Why shouldn't blue rods go through the background?

I wouldn't call it a bug. It's the physics of this world, not ours.
How do 'water rods' work in our world?
The wiki says that 'With enough force, any object can pass through another object', but it does call it 'technically a glitch':
http://fc.therisenrealm.com/wiki/Physics_glitches#Object_pass-through

Here's a different solution from 8/02 http://fantasticcontraption.com/?designId=89674
Is it a bug that the chain breaks?

Chain breaks are technically a bug too, I think. I personally don't mind that bug when designing, as it seems to be related to force anyway(pull a chain hard enough, and it SHOULD break). Rods passing through environment "feels" more wrong to me, since it feels more like bypassing an obstacle than utilizing a design tactic.

Hover over the blue rod icon at the top of the screen and it says that blue rods are supposed to pass through other rods, but not the environment. But it doesn't really matter on this thread, because the lower level doesn't have to be cleaned. I didn't bookmark it, but I've seen the lower level cleaned with a chain break...which was what I was trying to do. But I'm not too proud to take a glitch when it works in my favor.

7b: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=102777. This remains my favorite. One day I'll get the stick to stand upright. :science:

Is this all we need for 2a? http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1458690
Or must it be a champ? http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=1459351
