Welcome to my guide of various paths that can be seen on a k'nex ball machine. You may have noticed that paths (at times) are considered to be called "elements." Well, I made this guide because my "elements" guide was becoming a little too oversized for more elements to be added. I then realized that it would be easier to make a separate guide based on just the regular paths that carry out the process of transporting balls to elements, lifts, etc. throughout a ball machine.

This guide will use paths I make and other paths (I didn't conceive) that aren't that piece-consuming, acting as an Add-On to my Knex Ball Machine Elements Guide.

Step 1: The Path

This is one of the simple paths that's perfect for any ball machine.
<p>Pretty darn cool!</p>
Spelling error: Step 18 last word. <br> <br>you wrote &quot;rods&quot; instead of &quot;connectors&quot;.
Cool, I'll be sure to include some of these in future ball machines! =D
Thanks for this post, it 's going to help me a lot
Very usefull, espacially for beginners.
It misses the rolling on one single rod :P <br>It is far easier to make than it looks like, so I am pretty surprised that I'm the first one to have built it into a ball machine ^^
Well, I believe I have tried it before, it falls off right away.
Not if you do it correctly <br>1st: don't force the rod it's rolling on into one direction, so only attach the side where the ball enters, the other one just lays on other rods <br>2nd: align the ball perfectly in the center on it <br>3rd: don't make it too fast
