Original elements from my various ball machines, all in one place. I will keep this updated, adding more elements with each ball machine. Photo is from Space Tower.
A different sort of wheel that I hadn't seen before. From Four Flags.
A variation of Kairah's spiral from Metropolis. Uses track connectors instead of gold connectors. Used in both Derezzed and Space Tower.
A new path I created for Skill Shot. Can be used in place of gold connector path in most applications. Very smooth, pretty easy to make. Turns aren't ...

Basic 3-railed path, but made with micro pieces. From Space Tower.
