Introduction: Dick Heijboer's New K'nex Elements

Hi everyone!

This is my new guide to K'nex ball machine elements.
I'll also update this guide with more elements later on, so be sure to check it out!
All the elements are designed by me, but feel free to use them for your own purpose.

Step 1:

Scroll further down to see more new elements from my ball machine Intertwined.

Step 2: Cooperating Arms

Step 3: Two Balls Element

Funny element which works only with two balls.. 

Step 4: Ferris Wheel

A larger ferris wheel than the normal one...

Step 5: Tunnel Path

A new kind of track! 

Step 6: Three-ball Dropper

A new kind of ball dropper made of panels.

Step 7: Snowflake Maze

A nice maze inside a support tower. :)
It uses many white snowflake connectors,  you can also use the 7-way 3D connectors. 

Step 8: Two-ball Dropper

Two-ball dropper which tilts forward.

Step 9: Tunnel

Step 10:

Step 11: Pannel Path

Step 12: Small Wheel

Step 19: Helix

My version of the helix.

Very neat idea! Well thought out design.

Speaking of which, the K'nex contest is returning this summer! You gonna join? :-)

author
dickheijboer (author)hunter9992014-03-25

Thanks!

Yay! Of course! I've to hold "Intertwined" a secret, becauce I think I don't have a finished ball machine right than!

author
hunter999 (author)dickheijboer2014-03-30

Sounds great man! I look forward to it, I saw the preview. Lets hope we both win prizes! :-)

author
dickheijboer (author)hunter9992014-03-31

Yeah, lets hope that! Do you know if I publish the vid and not an Instructable I can join the contest? :)

author
hunter999 (author)dickheijboer2014-03-31

As far as I'm aware, yes. Though, personally I would say to post pics and a vid as with just a vid, it decreases the chances of winning a prize. (see link)
