The elements you are about to see come from our ball machine "Automated". I hope you find this instructable helpful. I will give tips and pointers on how you should do it. There are different kinds of ball machines to build one you need to decide what kind. For example you could build a square one,or you could build a (in the air kind). Those are the only kind I know at the moment. You might consider doing a (in the air one) if you don't have any space in your house. To see what an "in the air one" looks like here is a link

. If you have a lot of floor space you can build a square one.Be sure to rate ***** and subscribe!
Step 1: Getting started...........
When you build a ball machine you need to know "how many pieces do I have?" do I have enough red rods to make a 7 foot one and so on............
Step 2: Element
This element I got from someone but I changed it. It is a two ball activated,one ball comes rolling on and gets stuck in the pit. Then a second one comes and both balls fall off.
NOT MY BEST ELEMENT
Step 3: Ferris wheel
This is an amazing element. The ball will land in between the red connecters and white rods,causing the whole element to spin. However you need the ferris wheel to be more to one side so that when the ball lands on the ferris wheel it will tip over.
Step 4: Custom modern guard rail
Guard rails keep the ball from coming off.
Step 5: Red ball dropper (in this case yellow)
This is a cool element. When the ball lands on the red rods/yellow rods, it will go down and let the ball roll off coincidently making the weight go up.
Step 6: Funnel
this comes in handy when catching flying balls
Step 7: Free fall/catcher
This element is a type of free fall/catcher good for catching a ball after a loop
Step 8: Some track...
This track is like the track in the background (what I call the boring track)
