Introduction: K'nex Ball Machine - Helios

Picture of K'nex Ball Machine - Helios

My first actual ball machine, and my second construction after I got the Big Ball Factory. It works surprisingly well, especially considering that I was the one who cobbled it together.

The elements, unfortunately, are not original. I've borrowed sandroknexmaster's Horizontal Clickers and austron's Half-Pipe, along with the Spiral, the lift, and some parts of the Loop from the Big Ball Factory. The only new element I've introduced is the 2x2 Dropper, an element which can drop balls with either side up and randomly deposits them on either side.

Thanks for watching!
