Introduction: Project Tres: Official Video

I finally got round to finishing the video. Just watch it, you'll see.

My latest and third (successful) ball machine/tower, and the follow up to uno and dos.

It features 4 paths, and reaches only about 3 ft tall. This has churned up about 3/4 of my pieces, and is so reliable that it has never failed me before.

It uses a few elements, including a new one I like to call the "black hole" on the fourth path. This is the first ball machine to use it, and in the future project quatro I will make much more use of it.

It includes:

  • basic pathing
  • yellow slides
  • ferris wheels
  • black hole
  • path separator
  • wave drop
  • spiral
  • jumps
  • gaps

All in about 3 ft of ball machine.

I'll try to make instructions soon, but it may be a smidge too big.

I'm making a ball machine, and I wanted to know if I should do a chain lift machine with 4 paths, or one with a double helix lift with two paths. Just want to know your opinions.
