looks cool! I'm building one at the moment, but I ran out of pieces :P

Sorunome (author)Borisv92016-08-30

Thank you!

You should totally share over on knexflux the progress of your machine!

LindaP5 (author)2015-09-18

Is there any instruction for the set? Thank you!

Sorunome (author)LindaP52015-09-18

Haha, no, i built it years ago, it is way too dense to make instructions from it! You can invent one of your own, too :)

www139 (author)2014-08-18

We are making plans for christmas break. What can you build on Christmas break?

Sorunome (author)www1392014-08-18

A ball machine :P

www139 (author)Sorunome2014-08-18

yeah. uh huh. I mean how big! -.-

Sorunome (author)www1392014-08-18

Well, dystopia took me like 3 months or so :P

www139 (author)Sorunome2014-08-19

Sorunome (author)www1392014-08-19

intructions????? :D

Sorunome (author)OZKNEX222014-04-04

No, sorry, it is too big / too complex / uses too many pieces to make instructions.

And besides, I already took it down nearly 2 years ago :P

dickheijboer (author)2013-05-14

I like the white platform! How many green rods have you used?

Sorunome (author)dickheijboer2013-05-15

Ha, a lot, i don't know how many, but that also varies on the size of the white floor.

dickheijboer (author)Sorunome2013-05-15

Haha, I have bought 400 green rods, I always have not enough green rods. Because I like white floors. XD

Rein77 (author)2012-07-02

How can those balls always move so strange in the end and land at the right place

Sorunome (author)Rein772012-10-16

The floor is bent so that the deepest part is the entrance of the lift (late reply, lol)

sandroknexmaster (author)2012-10-16

100th comment!!! :D


Shadowman39 (author)2012-05-01

Do you happen to have the semi-circle lift still? I would like to add a picture of it to my lift guide. (And the picture already in your slideshow is at a strange angle) :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-02

Damit! Why didn't i think of some more pics...
I found one, i uploaded it here:

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-05-02

Thanks, I added it.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-03

jameshond (author)2012-05-02

how do you make that platform ? it is coool

Sorunome (author)jameshond2012-05-02

I supported it from underneath, I just bend it a bit so that the ball will always roll to the entrance of the lifts, no matter where it drops down.

jameshond (author)Sorunome2012-05-02

okey thanks i make an platform for my ballmachine but i cant make it big iit is 4 red cubes big

Sorunome (author)jameshond2012-05-02

Maybe you could invent such a ball machine on your own.

jmiester (author)2012-04-30

Sorunome (author)jmiester2012-04-30

Is that possitive? xD

jmiester (author)Sorunome2012-04-30

Sorunome (author)jmiester2012-05-01

And I don't know that movie :P

KneXtreme (author)Sorunome2012-05-01

It's not a movie, it is a TV show. It's actually pretty interesting.

Sorunome (author)KneXtreme2012-05-01

Well, I don't watch TV :P

Shadowman39 (author)2012-04-30

This just now showed up in the filters, as the most recent Knex Ible. :-P

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-01
