Nicely done. Great job!

dickheijboer (author)KneXtreme2013-11-06

Thank! Are you building something?

KneXtreme (author)dickheijboer2013-11-11

Yep. I'm building a ball machine about the size of my last one.

dickheijboer (author)KneXtreme2013-11-12

Nice, can't wait! And with many new element hopefully.. :)

WOW!!! This is amazing!!! I would have preferred it if you showed us the tracks individually, I can understand that the vid would take longer to make though. However nonetheless it is epic. I like the support tower with the maze in, very innovative.

One other thing I noticed that there was no white floor :-( but sometimes different is better :-)

Can't wait for your next!! And I hope you enjoy your gift ;)!

yeah. I was really looking forward to seeing the individual tracks.

dickheijboer (author)hunter9992013-11-04

Thanks dude! Sorry, I hate Pinnacle Studio, it works so slow with long video's.. That's the reason and it's already taken down.... Yup, no white floor, white floor is planed for the next.. :) Yeah, me to! And of coarse I do!

pinnacle studio: +1

Like I've told you before, GREAT work on the machine. I really like this, not sure why...

Yeah, thanks! Maybe it's a K'nex ball machine? :)

Excellent job! Very nice ball machine!


Sorunome (author)2013-11-06

Yay, pump lift :3
Anyways, nice ball machine! Are you planning on making a vid of every path?

dickheijboer (author)Sorunome2013-11-06

Yeah, good lift, works well!
Thanks! Uh, no, it's already taken down....

Sorunome (author)dickheijboer2013-11-07

oh, lol :P

dickheijboer (author)Sorunome2013-11-07


Great ball machine! Lots of movement...and all works nicely together. Good job! :-)
(I have to admit, that panel-path stands out well, the balls meandering their way downhill...)

Thanks man! Yeah, I love the panel-path but it's difficult to make it work well.

AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY. cool ball machine btw.

Thanks, I wish I could film with that camera... And also thanks!

no problem. But seriously, picture 15?!! AWESOME.

Haha, thanks man!

Nice ball machine! That wide maze and panel path are cool. Have you already started on your next ball machine? :-P

dickheijboer (author)Shadowman392013-11-04

Thanks! ShallI make instructions of the panel path? And no, but many drawings.. :)

Shadowman39 (author)dickheijboer2013-11-04

I guess you could add it to your guide. And I thought you were already building because it says new elements and lift coming soon, lol.

dickheijboer (author)Shadowman392013-11-04

Awesome! Uh, no, some new elements of Edifice, and the new lift comes not from Edifice... :)
