Cool! I wish I knew homw to build ball machines... :(

Thanks! Just do it! And what Sandroknexmaster sayd; begin small.. :)

:) ok



Asking for tips to ball machine builders is a good start ;)

Well I would if I had K'nex motors... And K'nex balls... And K'nex chains... And more K'nex pieces... And K'nex rails... And room... Ugh... :(

You can start with a smal ball machine :)

True... True... I may try it soon. I'll be sure to ask for help if I need it. Could I use some of your elements if I did?

Sure! I have 2 published element guides, and I'm currently working on the element guide for paradox.

This is awesome! I didn't even see the vid but I allready know from the pictures that I'll like it! It's the completeness I like most, it really looks "finished". It's a good combination of rectangular parts (the structure, support tower for the chain lift, the pinfield element,...) and curved parts (the rollercoaster track, the yellow (here light-grey) connector path in the front, the spiral, the looping,...). The white floor looks very impressive too: Very sturdy and the white connector panels at the side make it look very good and filled up. Good job on this ball machine! I can't wait to see the vid!
Voted! :D

I mean I'll vote when it get's accepted in the contest ;)

Ahh, yeah! I can commend here right now! Thanks I love the pinfielt element to! And thanks for voting but it doesn't help anymore.... :(

Yeah, too bad, you deserved at least a runner-up :(

Hmm, as I say, it get not enough views... But, next time better luck!
