That is amaZing thanks for commenting on mine as well
sandroknexmaster (author)  An33l1 year ago
Thanks and no problem!
thanks
can you plz make instructions
In the description you can find links for instructions: new elements and new lift.
Making instructions for the whole machine is not very easy, and it's already down for a long time.

Amazing ball machine! I loved all the new elements and was fascinated with the z-shaped thingy that you added! Someday hopefully I'll make another ball machine that's larger than Rock of Prometheus!
sandroknexmaster (author)  Jag561 year ago
That z-shaped thing is not designed by me, Toeti made it: http://www.instructables.com/id/my-new-elements/ (step 5)
Thanks!
BTW I also hope you'll make another bigger ball machine, you have more then enough pieces! :D
Yeah I noticed that after I looked at the instructable on all the new elements :P
sandroknexmaster (author)  Jag561 year ago
You mean the guide by Knextreme?
No, the element guide for dragonfire, the z-shaped thing wasn't on it.

Oh ok :)

Really cool Elements you added in.Im trying to build my first Knex machine
sandroknexmaster (author)  Bolts#132 years ago
Cool! If you want to use some of these elements check out my other ible there you can find closer pics or instructions.
Please let me know when you're done with it! :)

Almost forgot: Thanks!
Very unique elements. I love the thing when 4 balls get on it it falls over on to 4 tracks.

amaing.. that thing s huge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
sandroknexmaster (author)  paul bunyan2 years ago
thanks!
Wait, before you take it down, can we see just pictures of the machine please?
Of course but why?
I wanted to make bases like that like in Metropolis but I didn't understand how to properly shape the mesh. If you don't want to you don't have to I'm just a little curious to know.
Watch my new ible of the new elements of dragonfire. There you can find pictures.
Ok. Is it possibly to add foto's to this ible or should i make a new one?
Yes that's possible. But you can also make an guide to all new ballmachine elements (and maybe the be lift) in this ballmachine.

BTW. Nice ballmachine!

welke motors heb je gebruikt voor de parralel arm lift en de ball machine ziet er cool uit 5*
sandroknexmaster (author)  jameshond2 years ago
Bedankt! Ik heb niet de solar motor gebruikt zoals de originele parallel arm lift. Ik heb gewoon een paar tandwielen weggehaald en een gewone knexmotor gebruikt. Ik had geen solarmotor dus heb ik dat maar aangepast.
ik heb geprobeerd met gewone motors maar het lukt niet hoe heb jij dat gedaan?
