Introduction: Catastropha Update #3

Picture of 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?

Sorunome (author)KneXtreme2011-07-21

10, will add 1 more.

KneXtreme (author)Sorunome2011-07-22

Cool! What type of lift will it be?

Orangeprofessor (author)2011-07-17

i cant wait to see the finished ball machine

Sorunome (author)Orangeprofessor2011-07-21

hehe, me neither! ;)

Tornado96 (author)2011-07-11

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! ;-)

Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-11

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?

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-11

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

Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-12

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

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-12

You can but people won't be AS interested.

Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-13

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

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-14

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

Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-14

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

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-14

we do?

Sorunome (author)Tornado962011-07-15

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

Tornado96 (author)Sorunome2011-07-15

Yeah do it alone I don't have time! :-P

albydesign (author)2011-07-10

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

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.....

albydesign (author)Sorunome2011-07-11

Ok! Good luck finishing! =D

Sorunome (author)albydesign2011-07-12

hehe, thanks! :)

albydesign (author)Sorunome2011-07-13

No problem! =D

RNB (author)2011-07-12

Looks epic! (comment since you wanted me to do so :-P)

Sorunome (author)RNB2011-07-12

hehe, thanks! And you didn't had to write that last part.... :)

Sorunome (author)2011-07-12

me neither! ;)

Cool! Are there many new elements too? (besides lifts)

Sorunome (author)martijnb952011-07-11

Yep! For example pic 2 and rolling on rods.....i don't know how of us built that before, as it is already in this bm for ages.
