Introduction: Configuration - KNEX Ball Machine

This is my most complex (not biggest) KNEX ball machine up to date. It features Sathoty's circle lift, two networks, six paths, and new elements.

HERE'S THE VIDEO:

Step 1: White Floor and Network Start-Up

This is the white floor where balls (not from paths 2 & 3) land here and bouncy off rubber bands I put on so they don't stay.

Step 2: Network 1

This network uses an arm lift to bring the balls to paths 1-3.

Step 3: Path 1

This path features my new element, path hanger and 95martb's gap element I kind of modified.

Step 4: Path 2

This path features MinnesotaRandomCrap's maze and my new double pathing which is under the maze.

Step 5: Path 3

This path was just made to fit in.

Step 6: The Bottom Path That Connects Paths 2 & 3

Instead of trying to get paths 2 & 3 to head for the white floor, I thought "why not just make a path for paths 2 & 3 to go under everything to the pathing that's right before the balls enter the circle lift."

Step 7: Network 2

This network has a chain lift with my own custom top and a new kind of path curve which brings the balls to paths 4-6.

Step 8: Path 4

This path features a large ball alternator and MinnesotaRandomCrap's double dropper element I modified to act like and flipper.

Step 9: Path 5

Not much for this path, just regular ball alternators.

Step 10: Path 6

This path greatly features my new triple-dropper element which requires a basket and extra pathing. My personal favorite.

Sorry, but that was the only good music I just had to go with. It just seems that whenever there's a copyright issue with my videos, it always seems to be blocked in your country for some reason.

Yeah, I know, a LOT of knex vids are blocked here in germany because of the background music -.-
