Knex Ball Machine: Revolution, Elements





Introduction: Knex Ball Machine: Revolution, Elements


Here are the instructions for the 5 new elements from my knex ball machine Revolution.

Not as many as usually, but the reason is that Revolution isn't as big as some of my previous machines.

If you have any questions, you can always post a comment or PM me.

Thanks for watching / building!


Step 1: Side Exit Arm

An arm where the ball exits to the side.

Step 2: Lift Arm

A cool element where the ball gets lifted up a bit after the arm is pushed down. This element works better when the arm is slightly tilted to the left, as seen in the last picture of this step. Make sure the ball enters slowly, or it won't work.

Step 3: Zig Zag Drop

This started as a lift idea but ended up as an element :D

Step 4: Clicking Path

Nice alternative path.

Step 5: Double Cross Tie Path

The parts under the path may seem pointless, but without them the ball gets stuck between the edges of the cross ties. And of course we don't want that to happen.

    Just realised the new path I made for my new ball machine is basically the same as one on here xD


    Love these elements. You always bring new things to the world of knex. I'll be sure to use some in my ball machine. (Like the clicking path.)

    Want a picture to add to add to a step or something like that?

    Here's the picture you wanted of the clicking path! I'll also give you a video so you can see what the clicking path does in my ball machine, that is, if the video will EVER FINISH UPLOADING! :0
