Back to Dystopia...

You remember me telling that I had to take down Dystopia back here?
I just say two words: APRIL FOOLS! :D
I hope I managed to fool many of you guys.
But I also got something for you: I made the pics of a vid I made while constructing the parallel arm lift, and I made the vid public for you guys!

Make a larger counter weight. you're motor is NOT very happy! :P
Sorunome (author)  Tornado964 years ago
It IS happy :P
happy motors do not groan... I really suggest making a larger counter weight. You have to pieces...
*the pieces
Sorunome (author)  Tornado964 years ago
Well, the problem is that there is already build a lot of stuff around it, maybe in the instructions of it :P
Or you could not be lazy, take some of that out and add a tiny bit of weight to it for better performance... It's called constructive criticism.
He said he would make the counterweight heavier, so I guess he finally did listen to us. :-P
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman394 years ago
Yes :P
If it breaks, then I'll get to laugh. :-)
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman394 years ago
It won't brake :P
The white worm gear might come off of the rod lol.
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman394 years ago
That never happen to me yet...to you? xD
Not to me, but it has happened to other people before. If the motor doesn't break, the rods with the gears will be twisted at least.
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman394 years ago
I have already such a twisted grey rod, it came with something i bought from ebay
So will I! :D
Sorunome (author)  Tornado964 years ago
Thats good. I wish i could say the same for Exodus...

Do NEVER EVER take down a ball machine before it's finished. I bought like 5-10k for catastropha to manage to finish it.
well, yesterday i did take down my unfinished bm... :(
Sorunome (author)  martijnb954 years ago
why, Why, WHY!
Even thought I really wanne make something completly different out of know i'm not taking down dystopia...
it was too big; i did want to make one around my room, but it wasn't worth finishing it: there wasn't enough space for exiting new lifts and elements.
fortunately, i started a new one, with a new lift system. i'll call it ''double claw lift.''
so i took it down only for new lifts and probably elements.
there will be a video from the unfinished one.
Too bad to hear about your unfinished one. But I'm lookinf forward to your newer one!
Sorunome (author)  martijnb954 years ago
that is bad... :(
I dont have the money to spend...

Also i have good ideas for new elements, lifts and overall structure of the ball machine.
Sorunome (author)  Purple Waffles4 years ago
Oh...hopfuly the lifts are not one of my 8+ lift ideas! :D
We'll see, won't we...

Sorunome (author)  Purple Waffles4 years ago
If you do tear down Exodus could you at least make a video of what you've got so far?
Sorunome (author)  KneXtreme4 years ago
i second that
Dont worry i already filmed what was made :)
Sorunome (author)  Purple Waffles4 years ago
whew :)
That was absolutely amazing! That totally worked and I'm glad to see it was all a joke. Can't wait to see it completed!
Sorunome (author)  shadowninja314 years ago
hehe, I managed to fool you all MUHAHAHAHAHAHA! :D (except shadowman as it was his idea ^^)
Don't put all the blame on me, you came up with the idea of an April fool's joke in the first place. :-P
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman394 years ago
Well, but I didn't had a idea what to do.
man tsk tsk tsk....u hurt my feelings:( now im sad:(
Sorunome (author)  Lightning Thunder4 years ago

Sorunome (author)  Lightning Thunder4 years ago

Totally fooled. I'm glad to see it's still here :)
Sorunome (author)  KneXtreme4 years ago

that lift looks cool! btw, parallel arm lift does already exist.
you can get it; no way there will be instructions for my one, sad story.......
Sorunome (author)  martijnb954 years ago
that lift was invented by shadowman39 in his unfinished ball machine and the name doesn't belong to you :P
you're right, but wouldn't it be confusing to have two lifts with the same name?
also, i do have an instructable about the parallel arm lift, i got confused with the returning arm lift. :)
Sorunome (author)  martijnb954 years ago
but....shadownam already named this lift parallel arm lift in the unfinished ball machine :P
Oh, darn it. I have to rename it now. :J
Sorunome (author)  martijnb954 years ago
hehe :P
