Introduction: Catastropha Update #3

Hi there!
I decided to make a new update of my current ball machine Catastropha! I also made a small vid of a path. If you want to have any more close-up pics please tell and I may add them! :)

I like the mini helix lift. By the way, how many lifts are you using?

author
Sorunome (author)KneXtreme2011-07-21

10, will add 1 more.

author
KneXtreme (author)Sorunome2011-07-22

Very cool! However there's one thing that nags me. Don't take it personally but i think the ball machine could look a little cleaner? If you know what I mean. There are pieces everywhere when there could be supports to make it look a little cleaner! I hope you like constructive criticism! :-D

(BTW When you start on SSC you'll get a lot of this! ;-)

I get what you mean....well my ball machine isn't planned, so that happens....mabey the next one will be better. And I thought SSC was just for coasters?

author
Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-11

I mena you'll get a lot of crticism :-P

author
Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-12

so can I also add it to ssc even thought it is just for coasters?

author
Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-12

You can but people won't be AS interested.

author
Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-13

I think I'm to lazy.... :P

author
Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-14

lol. Are you gonna do a roller coaster after this?

author
Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-14

Maybe....but we first have a collab. :)

author
Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-14

author
Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-15

The ball lift. Of cource if you don't want to I can do it all alone. :)

author
Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-15

Nice! Is this still an on-going project? How long until you finish? =D

author
Sorunome (author)albydesign2011-07-11

Yes, I'm still working on it. I don't know when it will be finished. But I'm closer to finishing than ever before (even in my feeling)! But my biggest problem is the lack of pieces.....

author
albydesign (author)Sorunome2011-07-11

Ok! Good luck finishing! =D

Sorunome (author)albydesign2011-07-12
