Newton's Cradle

"Newton's Cradle" This is a Newton's cradle. You pull back a ball on the end, let it go, and it smacks the ball in front of it. The force travels through the other balls, not moving them, except for the last ball, which flies out in an unexpected manner...comes back, hits, repeat, etc. I tried to model this in Carrara, but was met with difficulty...so it's modeled in Wings3D, and rendered in Carrara. The background is a stock HDRI image that came with Carrara.
