Knex Designs





Introduction: Knex Designs

About: I paint, write music, and used to build knex guns. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art. - updated 5/7/2014

This instructable is to show k'nex parts so that others can use them for their own builds. They are going to be mostly weapon parts.

Each picture corresponds to a letter and 2 numbers, the first letter is the section, the first number is the picture number, and the second number is the design number.

Similarity to any other design is coincidental. If you use any of the ideas from Knex Designs, you must give the designer credit for their idea on the intro step of your instructables and slideshows.

I will be adding new designs over time.

    im using the frame 2A1 for my knex pistol called shasha (my first posted pistol) and the barrel 4B2
    for my smg I will call Nora

    are you supposed to attach the barrel to the frame on step 1?

    is there a really good trigger system on instructables that i could use?

    its called a yellow half snowflake on a axle with a pin on top


     1B1 reminds me a tad of the AR-15's upper reciever, the very back, where the charging bolt is.

    reminds me of Z35 if you ask me

    No, that's why it's here.

     Cool. I'm not stupid, I was asking permission.

    you should post some nice sear trigger concepts.

    They deleted it because it isn't an instructable. Posting CAD mock-ups of part of a design does not make it your design.

     They delete it if there is not enough steps- they won't let me post my robot mods because there are only three pictures

    I know why they deleted it. And they aren't mock ups of other peoples designs, I created them on mlcad from my mind.

    When did I say they were other people's designs?

     You said "Posting CAD mock-ups of part of a design does not make it your design. " Which led him to believe that you were saying that he did not create the designs. Therefore He said they weren't mock ups of other peoples guns, and that he created them.

    hey i dont want to seem rude but maby you should make one on mags and receviers because im sure people would find that realy useful including myself

    Good idea, I will if I think of any new ones. Don't be afraid to make suggestions, it's not rude, it's helpful, thanks.

    How about a mag on the bottom and one on the top so when you run out of ammo on the bottom mag you just activate the top one?

    thanks, you gave me an idea. I'll make the last barrel and give credit to you. its for a shotgun.
