Firing the ball.. at wood

Ok first attempts to fire the ball started.  The end result is that I need to design a ball guide.  Surprisingly while I was worried that the ball would shoot forward and have to compensate due to the angle of the standard ball trough I was repurposing, instead shoots backwards a bit.  Tried to capture some ‘slow motion’ videos but the reality is, the ball moves pretty fast.

Here can see it go backwards a bit.

And from a more frontal view, can see the dent the ball is making into the wood.

So have been working on a ball guide. Tried printing a bunch of cones but most success was just a block of wood this morning. 

So, progress..
