Introduction: Knex Ballmachine Armageddon

Picture of Knex Ballmachine Armageddon

This my new ballmachine: Armageddon. I had lots of fun building it. I took me 2 months to build and one month to make the video( making the video was boring).
I want to thank almost al the ballmachine builders for giving me insperation from their ballmachines.

It features:
4 lifts divided in 2 networks( A network whit 1 lift and one whit 3 lifts)
8 paths (4 at each network)

Infinity switch: Sorunome
I got inspiration for the first lift from cassidude's quarter arm lift

Also i'm gonna make guide to the new elements

Thanks! I don't listen to alot of music myself. So I could never think of any music to use. I'll try searching some more next time.

eindelijk iemand gevonden die ballemachines maakt en die wit zwarte balle gebruikt! :D

sathothy (author)cooljupjup2013-03-03

Yep, ik heb die andere ballen niet dus gebruik ik deze.

cooljupjup (author)sathothy2013-03-03

ah ik ben nu bezig met een ballmachine maar veel elements die op internet staan werkend niet met die nieuwe balletje dus moet sommige dinge verandere dan :P

Are the green balls the same size of the black and white balls?

sathothy (author)KneXtreme2012-05-19

Yes they are.

KneXtreme (author)sathothy2012-05-19

Cool. Thank you.

Looks great! I dont have the time (or pieces) to do this :P

Thanks! I took me a long time to build and collect the pieces.

sathothy (author)jameshond2012-04-03

Bedankt! Kairah heeft hem bedacht ik heb heb aleen maar veranderd.

jameshond (author)sathothy2012-04-03

ik bedoelde de arm lift van network 1

sathothy (author)jameshond2012-04-04

Ohh oke! Die ja die was best wel moeilijk om te maken vooral de krukas was moeilijk.

jameshond (author)sathothy2012-04-03

ik heb ook geprobeerd om een armlift te maken maar het lukte niet maaar die van jou is nice

sathothy (author)jameshond2012-04-03

Die ene arm lift die in je ballmachine zit? Wat was het probleem dan?

jameshond (author)sathothy2012-04-03

hij pakte de bal niet goed op maar nu wel

martijnb95 (author)2012-04-02

sathothy (author)martijnb952012-04-02

Bedankt! Ik ga zeker door!

Отличная статья!Очень полезно ! Это же сколько времени нужно.

sathothy (author)apelisin2012-02-25

What do you mean whit that?

Sorunome (author)sathothy2012-02-26

there's something called spam... :P

sathothy (author)Sorunome2012-02-26

Its no spam. I found that out when i go to his profile. You will see something in a weird language. So I putted it in google translate and it said it was russian( i think). And i found out what he said. But google translate is never reliable.

Sorunome (author)sathothy2012-02-27

seems like instructables forgot to make these characters displayable in discussions xD

Sorunome (author)Sorunome2012-02-27

Whait a sec. at the second look i noticed it is DANGEROUS that instructables has that glitch, as in the source code are the normal > tags what he wrote (instead of > which appears to be a >) and so you could hijack a lot, and i'm NOT kidding......

This is a fantastic ball machine! I especially enjoy how the ball moves calculatedly through each bend and drop. The overall design is very efficient and allows us to view the components clearly. The time you put into the video is appreciated, but I'd love to see 30-second clips of the entire ball machine at different angles with all of the paths active. It think it'd look even more impressive if we could see the entire thing in action. Thanks for sharing this!

sathothy (author)LanceMakes2012-02-23

Thanks! And first i was able to put the whole ballmachine in action for 5 minutes whitout one bal falling out. But when i wanted to film it, the balllmachine wasent wanted to work anymore.
But I keep that in my mind for the next time I film a ballmachine.

KneXtreme (author)2012-02-23

Wow! Amazing! I love how its nice and wide but not tall. Very unique. I admire people who can build amazing stuff like this with micro knex. Can't wait to see what stuff you make in the future. 5*s

sathothy (author)KneXtreme2012-02-23

Thanks alot! I actually became wider than i tought i would going to be. And thanks for that 5*'s.

knexpert#10829476 (author)2012-02-23

You should post some of the ball machine elements because your ball machine is unique.

Thanks, and yes i'm gonna make a guuide to the new elements.
