I'm proud to present you my newest, biggest and best preforming ball machine yet, Intertwined. Feel free to ask questions!

Some facts:
-14 tracks
- 5 networks
- 7 lifts
- half a year of building time

Special thanks to Sandroknexmaster (elements), Sorunome (Ultimate Chainsaw Lift), 39Shadowman (Shifting Arm lift) and Tornado96 (Shifting Arm lift and Semi-Circle Lift) and all the other K'nex ball machine builders on YouTube and Instructables.

<p>Question: what tubing do you think is best for building a knex ball machine?</p>
<p>in some cases the old orange tubing is better. due to the thinner radius, you can make tighter corners with the track. also, in a general 2 orange connectors on a blue rod type path, the ball lies deeper within an orange tubing based path, making it more stable. besides that, the ball holds more tortional energy, so it makes for a general slower, but not nescesary more energy loosing type of pathing.</p>
<p>I came to the same conclusion. It also looks good w/ the gold connectors :P</p>
<p>I think the rollercoaster tubing because it's strong. </p><p>(But I haven't got that many of that)</p>
<p>Thanks. (sorry for the late reply)</p>
<p>Hey, I just made my first instruct abeles account, I am filming my new ball machine right now</p>
<p>I saw it, it's great, and can't wait for the new video!</p>
<p>Vid is unavailable in germany :(</p>
<p>Get proxtube.</p>
<p>Nope, not doing it :P</p>
<p>but it removes the video block right?</p>
<p>More like, overgoes it by proxying through the US :P</p>
<p>Oh no! Do you know how to fix it?</p>
<p>it is because youtube is just stupid. You could send me the file over skpye, though :3</p>
<p>I'll do that.</p>
<p>NICE!!!!!!</p>
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>welcome!</p>
<p>AMAZING ball machine! :-D A great way to kick off the &quot;ball machine season&quot; (a.k.a. summer); makes me want to continue my next ball machine! I would list what I liked the most, but the list is already overflowing. I especially commend you on the elevator and crane lifts: I have tried both before, but neither one successfully. Makes yours all the more impressive! ;-)</p>
<p>Thanks! I also like that lifts, and I the instructions of the elevator lift are coming soon, maybe friday! Can't wait to see your ball machine!</p>
<p>Yea! :-D Those will be cool instructions, for sure...</p><p>As for my next ball machine, you may be waiting awhile. It's uh, still mostly in the concept stage right now. But summer is here, right? :-}</p>
How did you get the mechanism to work.
<p>4 weeks of working on the mech..</p>
Cool man!
<p>Thanks!</p>
<p>As I already said on youtube, truly amazing!</p>
<p>Thank you Sandroknexmaster, you inspired me!</p>
<p>:D</p><p>BTW, I just found out that none of your ball machines have been featured yet, I almost can't believe that...</p>
<p>Yeah, I get not that many views.</p>
<p>WOW!! This is truly awesome! The density this ball machine has is great. The white floor is a nice touch. 1:58 - that element is very unique! Great job :D</p>
<p>Thanks! I will make instructions of that element! :) </p>
<p>Sounds good, I look forward! :D</p>
<p>I will let you know.. :)</p>
This thing rivals Metropolis.
<p>That's a high praise! </p>
<p>Great ball machine! I really like that crane lift and elevator lift.</p>
<p>Thanks Shadowman! The crane lift is from the &quot;power tower crane&quot; set, a bit modified and I will make instructions of the elevator lift!</p>
<p><font><font class="goog-text-highlight">Wow! Cool machine, Cool lifts! Good job! But why 7x </font></font>pirates of the caribbeans song in the vid? :D</p>
<p>Thank you! Yeah, I'm sorry but I didn't know something other.. :/</p>
<p>Awesome machine! Really good job. I like the elevator lift, and there is lots if cool elements too!</p>
<p>Thanks dude! I'll make instructions of the elevator lift and the new elements!</p>
You got a sub.
<p>Thank you very much!</p>
That looks so forking epic! Wow!
