Introduction: K'NEX Drink Machine

Picture of K'NEX Drink Machine

When you are done building this, you should have a K'NEX drink machine that can hold to water bottles or soda cans at a time. It is assumed that you have a basic understanding of how to snap plastic K'NEX pieces together, and I didn't over this. You can make modifications to your machine to make it more sturdy, efficient, appealing, or convenient. Sometimes a bottle or can has trouble going down and leaving the machine, but for the most part it runs smoothly. Here is a video of the finished product.

Step 1: Part Count

Note that my part count is an approximation that is a little off. You should probably have more parts just in case my numbers are a little too low.

Step 2: Put Together the Base

Sorry, I don't know if there's anything I can do to fix that. It worked for me but took a while to buffer.
