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)

Credits:
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

de ballmachine ziet er mooi uit 5 sterren arm lift is cool
sathothy (author)  jameshond2 years ago
Bedankt! Kairah heeft hem bedacht ik heb heb aleen maar veranderd.
ik bedoelde de arm lift van network 1
sathothy (author)  jameshond2 years ago
Ohh oke! Die ja die was best wel moeilijk om te maken vooral de krukas was moeilijk.
ik heb ook geprobeerd om een armlift te maken maar het lukte niet maaar die van jou is nice
sathothy (author)  jameshond2 years ago
Die ene arm lift die in je ballmachine zit? Wat was het probleem dan?
hij pakte de bal niet goed op maar nu wel

Отличная статья!Очень полезно ! Это же сколько времени нужно.
sathothy (author)  apelisin2 years ago
What do you mean whit that?
there's something called spam... :P
sathothy (author)  Sorunome2 years ago
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.
seems like instructables forgot to make these characters displayable in discussions xD
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)  WYE_Lance2 years ago
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.

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)  KneXtreme2 years ago
Thanks alot! I actually became wider than i tought i would going to be. And thanks for that 5*'s.
You should post some of the ball machine elements because your ball machine is unique.
sathothy (author)  knexpert#108294762 years ago
