Introduction: Diamondback Ball Machine

Diamondback ball machine.

Just a ball machine I made, a bit like project box, but bigger, and it only has one path, but it is equally cool. More info at the end of the video.

1.5*

Hiyadudez (author)chopstx2010-01-04

Why so low? :(

chopstx (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-04

One track, and not a newer lift.

So?

Does it matter?

Not EVERYTHING has the be complex and technical.

chopstx (author)Hiyadudez2010-08-25

2 stars for almost average?

chopstx (author)Hiyadudez2010-03-21

But 1.5 is "some flaws." I just think the chain lift is ... boring.....

The Jamalam (author)chopstx2010-08-25

I know I'm really late, but I don't see that as a flaw. It was well executed and strong unlike other ball machines on here. I'd rate it at least 3.5 for above average.

chopstx (author)The Jamalam2010-08-25

Yes, well built.

Mr. Muggle (author)2010-01-04

I like it, It's got a nice shape two!!

Hiyadudez (author)Mr. Muggle2010-01-04

Thanks, did you rate?

Also, it's not 'I like it, It's got a nice shape two!!', it's 'I like it, it's got a nice shape too!!'

Grammar freak^^

novakfor3 (author)2010-08-28

Nice 'little' contraption. 4 stars. With more elements, it could definitly be more exciting.

Lightning Thunder (author)2010-08-25

5*'s

Oblivitus (author)2010-01-05

Nice camera work.

Hiyadudez (author)Oblivitus2010-01-05

Uhh.. thanks? :-P

~Aeronous~ (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-05

 haha the camera where it shos the ball close up and you kept stopping and starting the camera, it was obviously not a very responsive button.

Oblivitus (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-05

The ball machine is good, I just thought that you might like to know that your camera techniques are good too.

Pizzapie500 (author)2010-01-05

Hmmm I like project box. Project box is more complex with a lot of elements and is more compact withh different paths. Overall it's ok, so 3*

COOL YOU HAVE THE SAME KIND OF TRIPOD AS I DO!

PatentPending (author)2010-01-05

 4 *'s because I can see a genuine effort was put into it and I'm pretty sure you're probably going to keep working on it and come out with something even better riiiight? =]

Tom Buckey (author)2010-01-05

I was planning to make a begginiers ball machine a litle like this but then discounted it to make my new epic new rifle.

~KGB~ (author)2010-01-04

im making a ball machine based off this, its going to have two tracks, one inside the tower, and one outside the tower. ive already done the tower...

fedecale (author)2010-01-04

1/2* ;D

Hiyadudez (author)fedecale2010-01-04

Why?

fedecale (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-04

Seleziona (author)2010-01-04

smilee (author)2010-01-04

Shadowman39 (author)2010-01-04

Hiyadudez (author)Shadowman392010-01-04

Thanks!

Shadowman39 (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-04

Are you still building the one with the arm?

Hiyadudez (author)Shadowman392010-01-04

Nah, it didn;t go according to plan, but I have started on a prototype of a ball launcher, I'll try get pictures up, maybe late tomorrow. I have to go back to school.Yay :l

Shadowman39 (author)Hiyadudez2010-01-04

Yeah, I have to go back to school tomorrow. :-(

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2010-01-04

i do have to agree with chopstix and knex freek but its still a decent ball machine

KnexFreek (author)2010-01-04

 im soooo srry but i agree with chopstx
but i gave it 3 stars cause that means above average

Hiyadudez (author)KnexFreek2010-01-04

*Sigh*

It still moved it down.

KnexFreek (author)KnexFreek2010-01-04

 crap, now i feel bad, when i gave it 3 stars the rating went down :(
so i gave it 4, even tho it doesnt deserve it ...

KnexFreek (author)KnexFreek2010-01-04
