video Knex Ball Machine: Euphoria
Hey guys

After a lot of troubles with making the video, I am proud to present you my third knex ball machine, Euphoria.
This is absolutely the best ball machine I ever build untill now.
Euphoria contains 10 paths, 11 lifts and....... 4 networks!
There are some new elements and 2 new lifts.
The first one is the lift in network 2 and the second new lift is the last one in network 4.
Build time: 28/05/2012 till 14/08/2012 (inclusive 2 weeks of vacation)
Height: 1.95m Width: 1.75m Depth: 1.35m
Pieces: 17505

Thanks to all ball machine builders for so much inspiration!

Here are the instructions for the new elements!
Here are the instructions for the new lift in network 2!

sandroknexmaster (author)  www1391 month ago

Ha, i've already seen people with over 5000 subbers ;)

But yeah, I'm getting bigger and bigger ;)

doesnt every one call u that? is it sandra 4 real?
Most people say sandroknexmaster, but sandro is easier to use because it's shorter.
Or ~SKM~ would be good :D
My real name is Alessandro, but most people just call me Sandro.

ok, SKM!

Thank you very much :D

Wat gebeurt er als je gewoon alle motors aan zet? Vallen de ballen veel van de baan af?
sandroknexmaster (author)  dickheijboer11 months ago
Ja toch wel, maar vooral omdat er 2 liften waren die vaak vastliepen. De paden zelf lukten meestal vrij goed.
Welke liften waren dat? Ook de "Counter Parallel Arm Lift"?
sandroknexmaster (author)  dickheijboer11 months ago
Nee die niet, de laatste lift van netwerk 1 (wheel lift) en de laatste van netwerk 2 (chainsaw lift).
Ok. :p
Thanks! :D

SKILL LEVEL: 9000+

Haha thanks and you're right ... more then 3000 parts :p
I like it how you used sandro instead of sandroknexmaster, sounds good :D
Hoi Ik denk dat al uw instructables geweldig maar i dont tijd hebben om te bekijken en van commentaar te voorzien in het nederlands ze allemaal vandaag, dus ik zal schrijven op dit ene dat je een groot begrip van Knex hebben, want toen ik probeerde om een Knex roller te bouwen coaster was het uiterst moeilijk. Misschien heb ik een paar foto's van het als je geluk hebt. De auto op het was niet geweldig, maar het deed de lus de lus dus dat het belangrijkste ding. x) By the way wil je mijn Knex competitie. Alstublieft.


Hi I think that all of your instructables are great but i dont have time to view and comment on them in dutch them all today so i will write on this one that you have a great understanding of knex because when i tried to build a knex roller coaster it was extremely hard . I may have a few pictures of it if your lucky. The car on it was not great but it did the loop the loop so thats the main thing. x) By the way do you want to join my knex competition. please .
Thanks!
I'm sorry but I don't have the time, to busy with my new ball machine. And I'm not very good at building cars.
Oh and you don't have to comment in Dutch :) I know more then enough english to understand all the comments.
its ok. i google translated it because i felt in a good mood.
