Well, I'd say it's a Forty Billion Barrel.

To built a working example is harder than one might think.

If you look closely onto these entries you see that the topmost marble lie directly between the layers and block the rotation of the layers. Your built doesn't seem to have this problem.
How did you do that?

Hi, and yes. A very small disparity will finally become very big, when a subject is becoming bigger and bigger. That's the hard part of modding this one.

And that's why I didn'y use normal size Barrel, but a smaller size barrrel from Japan. That one is smaller than usual barrel, but bigger than ketchain size. I got them from Japan's webstore. The balls of Normal size Barrel is not that big. There'll be around 1mm space at the hole. So when many layers are combined, The toppest layer will be jammed. But if for this middle size's balls, there'll be 1mm wider for both size of the barrel. So the edge of those layer will be wider as well.

So the situation you said won't happen. I hope my english is good enough to explain this.

This is great! Love seeing mods of older puzzles.

It's funny, I have a similar issue to content with when creating larger "The Orb" puzzles.

Good word! If solving the original Ten Billion Barrel is difficult, this one would be impossible without a computer! Unless you can solve the puzzle in sections, treating each section as an individual barrel...and solving would take ages upon ages upon ages...

This is the way you would do it. Actually solving a barrel with N layers is not mor difficult than solving a barrel with 2 layers.
But: Who cares? It looks impressive!
