Picture of Knex Ball Machine Catastropha
Here it is finally, Catastropha!
After more than one year of construction it has 11 lifts and 17 paths!
For the full description and the slide-show please visit this website!
And here's the vid:

Oh, and I forgot to mention: I have created 6 vLogs to Catastropha, hidden, and if at least 20 people want me to publish them I'll do so.
And if you want me to take any more pic of Catastropha I'll also put that on my website! :)

I realised that I did not comment on this either :P

Epic machine though :) How many pieces in this build (because I know you would have counted them :P) )

Ha, thanks!
Also, i stated that one my website:
Woah, you counted the pieces of a ball machine? I'm surprised. :-P Nice parts list though, with all the pictures of pieces. Are you going to do that with Apocalypse?
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman398 months ago
i thought you new i did, i also had a contest running on piece guessing :P

Also, probably not going to count apocalypse as it uses waaaay more pieces :P
Ha, I forgot about the contest too.

Get a new brain :P
/me hides
But the new brain wouldn't have any memory stored at all. :-P
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman398 months ago
But maybe its storage capacity will be slightly better >.>

In the picture, it looks like there are bubbles. :-P

Also, I just noticed I had never commented on this, so... Great ball machine! :-D
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman3910 months ago
ha, lol, i know that that pic is a bad pic :P
And lol that you never commented on it xD
I guess I was inactive when you posted this. The bubbles make sense. :-P
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman3910 months ago

Sorunome (author)  Shadowman3910 months ago

Really cool and what camera was used to film this
Sorunome (author)  Orangeprofessor2 years ago
Thanks! I used Exilim from Casio.
Sorry, I don't know the exact number as I replaced the instructions but it has 30 ftps continuus shooting and can film up to 1000 frames per second.
btw can you create an instructable on how you created the switchers for this ball machine
Sorunome (author)  Orangeprofessor2 years ago
