Introduction: 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!
Here are the instructions for the new lift in network 4!

doesnt every one call u that? is it sandra 4 real?

author

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.

Woah, Sandro!!! I saw you liked a few of my things, so I came to your profile. I don't think anymore needs to be said other than the fact that I'm subscribing... Your ball machines are wickedly awesome!

author

Thank you very much :D

Wat gebeurt er als je gewoon alle motors aan zet? Vallen de ballen veel van de baan af?

author

Ja toch wel, maar vooral omdat er 2 liften waren die vaak vastliepen. De paden zelf lukten meestal vrij goed.

author

Welke liften waren dat? Ook de "Counter Parallel Arm Lift"?

author

Nee die niet, de laatste lift van netwerk 1 (wheel lift) en de laatste van netwerk 2 (chainsaw lift).

author

Ok. :p

author

Thanks! :D

I MEAN CRAP, MAN, I BUILT A CROSSBOW. WHICH IS COOL. BUT THIS IS FREAKING OVER THE TOP OF COOLNESS AND GOING INTO THE EPICOSITY SECTOR.

If you like this SO much, you will not survive when you see my next ball machine :D
