K'netic Energy - K'nex Ball Machine





Introduction: K'netic Energy - K'nex Ball Machine

This is K'netic Energy, and largest and most complex K'nex Ball Machine to date!

Here are some statistics about the machine:
- over 25 000 pieces
-5 lifts
-4 motors
-16 balls
-20 different paths
-6 months of construction

This machine also featured some new element designs as well. Some examples are the 2 way bridge over the door, the free-fall lift, the free-fall path with large yellow gears, and the trap doors.

An interesting fact about the machine; near the end of construction, carpenters came to redo my floor. As a result, I had to disassemble the entire machine in small chunks, and move it to my basement until the floor was done. Afterwards, I had to re-assemble and -realign all 28 sections that had been taken apart. The finished product looked exactly like before, luckily, and with no damage.

    Not that big.. :/ but its really cool I have a 50000+ pce one


    I highly doubt he has. I mean he has not posted any 'Ibles to indicate he has that many pieces and he only joined 4 days ago...

    He may have that many pieces, as he has already recreated Shadowman's Skeeball Machine.

    Hehe! Yep he sure did
