<p>question how do you make the elevator lift come back down or reverse itself?</p>
<p>With a mechanism thingy that took me like 3-4 months to build with several non-working designs :P</p><p>Somehow similar like how a gearing is working in a car, only automatically triggered ;)</p>
<p>Oh. (sorry late reply... not in comment tracker...)</p>
<p>better late than never ;)</p>
SICK! wow awesome ball machine. I'm still amazed by the height of that monster. Nice job sir
<p>Haha, thank you!</p>
<p>Dude, this is amazine. My sister and I are in awe!</p>
Haha, thanks!
<p>You are very welcome.</p>
<p>Nice machine! I like it. </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>These machines keep getting bigger and bigger and more and more complex. One day, one of them will collapse under the weight of its own awesomeness and create a k'nex singularity.</p><p>That day cannot be far off . . . </p>
Haha, thanks :D
<p>This is another incredible ball machine from Sorunome! I loved the whole thing, but was especially impressed by the elements at 5:12, 6:10, 7:01, and 9:00. Great job! ;-D</p><p>By the way, that's a lot of Rubik's cubes at 3:30! o.o</p>
<p>Haha, thanks!<br>I didn't invent the elements at 6:10, 7:01 and 9:00, though ;)</p><p>And I have quite a some rubiks cubes than showen ^.^</p>
<p>Hey, if I see an element I like, I still find it impressive whether or not it is an old element. :-) Great machine!</p>
ok, thanks! ^.^
<p>By the way, you're now officially my 300th commenter! :-D</p>
yaaaay :D
<p>About 20% cooler then all the other BM's out there.</p>
<p>Haha, thanks!</p>
<p>Pure epicness...</p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>Great build! Loved the video!</p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>Wow, this is ready for the mall or the airport. Impressive</p>
<p>Haha, I ain't giving up my knex!</p><p>Anyways, thanks!</p>
<p>Might be one of the best!! Some of the elements are just incredible. Awesome job, man.</p>
<p>Haha, thanks!</p>
<p>1:51 AWESOME!!</p>
<p>Haha, thanks! I didn't invent that element, though</p><p>*glares at <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-3D-Spiral/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-3D-Spiral/</a>*</p>
<p>Yeah! That's one awesome ball machine!</p><p>The loop looks great IMO, and there are some cool new elements as well :D</p>
<p>Deserves a feature!</p>
<p>haha, thanks! :D</p>
<p>Haha, that would be funny indeed, but I like making completley free-standing ball machine ;)</p>
<p>Wow! Great ball machine! Yay, you used my wheel lift with holes :) I like how you put a twist on some of the older elements, but yet there are some amazing new elements like that spiral shoot thing. The loop's epic. </p>
<p>Thanks!</p><p>And it is actually my own design, based on yours, I didn't use your instructions :P</p>
<p>O_O! Words can't describe how awesome your ball machine is, why is this not featured :-(. So many parts I liked in the ball machine! How many pieces does it use? - and I agree with Shadowman, this is your best work to date. Spectacular job! Favourited! =D</p>
<p>Haha, thanks!</p><p>SOmehow i have the feeling the team doesn't stumble upon my 'ibles often :(</p><p>And i'd estamate about 30k pieces.</p>
<p>Wow. This makes the big ball factory look like a single piece. How many motors does it use?</p>
<p>Haha, thanks! And in total it uses 10 motors :)</p>
<p>You're welcome :D </p>
This is awesome great work
<p>Thank you!</p>
Nice!
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>Awesome ball machine, definitely your best yet! I see Derpy in the first picture. :-P I like the way the ring lift sticks out. Looking forward to seeing the video. ;-)</p>
<p>Haha, thanks :P</p>
<p>You're welcome, and now that I've seen the video, my favorite path is the loop path, because you made the balls build up and go on the loop at once. :-) Also lots of interesting elements in there. Great job :-D</p>
<p>Haha, thanks!</p><p>I don't think anybody ever made such a long two-rail path with only yellows yet...lol, the hard thing was that it has to be completley straight, one little bending and the ball would fall off, lol</p>
