Introduction: Knex 'Slider' Ball Lift
This lift is quite like the 'alternator' lift, but at a 45 degree angle. It's also a lot more piece efficient.
It is also easily modified to get higher.
Step 1: Making a Scaffold
This scaffold will be made of 'cubes' and a slope down the side.
Part of the scaffold is left out, on the black rods around that there are dark grey connectors.
There is also a small ramp at the orange connectors, a yellow connector at the top, and extra base at the bottom, front.
Step 2: Moving Part
This is the bit that slides up and down.
Step 3: Adding That
Clip the previous step onto the dark grey connectors in the gap.
Step 4: Roof
This is the part that goes above the slider so the ball doesn't go down.
Step 5: Attaching the Roof
Attach each of the blue rods to the scaffold.
Step 6: Entrance Track
This is where the ball enters the lift
Step 7: Adding the Entrance
There are six places to connect the green rods.
Step 8: Motor Parts
This is the crankshaft and the motor.
Step 9: Putting It Together (Finished)
There are five connections to make.
Step 10: What If Your Slider Is Jamming?
Put a spacer on any of the red rods like in the pictures.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
