Step 1: Lower Part

You'lll start with the lower part.

Step 2: Wheel Stuff

Now you'll make some wheel stuff.

Step 3: Gearbox

Now it's time to make the gearbox. Be sure to turn all the gear rods correctly.

Step 4: Connect the Gearbox.

Now you'll have to connect the gearbox.

Step 5: Ferris Wheel

Now you'll make the main wheel.
It consists out of 32 segments, they are all the same.

Step 6: Other Wheel Stuff

Now you'll make the other wheel stuff.

Step 7: Add the Rest of the Chain

Now you'll just have to add the rest of the chain and you are finished!
The number of chain links required is 88.
<p>does it change something if i use another motor beacause i don t have this one. Its for my second ball machine.</p>
<p>Should work with any motor, you just have to make the motor part on your own.</p><p>And ball machine? Are you sure you don't want to be making <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Ring-Lift-Version-2/">https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-Ring-Lift-Ver...</a> ?</p>
<p>nop i want to build this one</p><p>and this motor goes faster than each others no ?</p><p>so well i will probably change some gears ...</p><p>(sorry for my bad english i speak french )=</p>
<p>Yeah the 12V motors are more powerful than the others, but as this isn't carrying any lift up you should be fine with upgearing some other motor.</p>
<p>ho my god i was confused i was sure it was for a ball machine but no xD</p>
<p>i think it will go too slowly )=</p><p>I want to build it D'=</p>
great! does it need the tubing?
<p>Yes, it's essential to get a good wheel shape for the wheels to grab</p>
<p>Oh ok i can't build it then :( Oh well.</p>
<p>awe, too bad :(</p><p>The thin (orange) tubing would maybe work, too</p>
<p>I have no tubing :-( At least I have lots of other pieces to work with!</p>
Cool
Thanks!
Nice work! You could totally build a London Eye model like this.
Ha, thanks! And yes, you could :)
perfect for a knex stargate...<br><br>...wish i had more knex :(
Haha, nice idea :D
This is FANTASTIC! Another brilliant creation from Sorunome. Keep it up :-D
Thanks!
WOW. You do realise there is only 1 of this kind of Ferris wheel on the world, which is also the largest? Great job I wondered when someone would make one they are a real challenge.<br> <br> <a href="http://cache.wists.com/thumbnails/9/70/9700a3ec7294de01212a1477576d8d6f-orig" rel="nofollow">The Big O</a>
Thanks! And no, i didn't know that it was unique :)
Yet another awesome creation... Following!

Very nice! I remember reading somewhere that these kind of Ferris wheels realy exist, and somewhere in Japan, there goes an rollercoaster through the ''hole'' in the wheel<br><br>5*
Thanks! And I think I saw once a pic of those ferris wheels...
