First it's time to make the base

Step 2: Making Some Walls...

It's time to make some walls! :D
Pay closely attention on how the white rods are.

Step 3: Making Some More Wall Stuff...

Step 4: The Wheel and the Motor

You could use a other motor, you'd have to invent it then on your own.

Step 5: And Some More Walls...

Step 6: The Exit Track

Step 7: Did I Already Mention Walls?

Step 8: The Roof

Finally something different! The roof! :D
I show it you like this apart as it is this way possible to attach it all.

Step 9: Finishing It

You are almost done!
You just have to make sure that the exit floor is already somewhat tilted, what i show here is just that it works in this model, in a ball machine you have to make it tilt somehow different as otherwise the floor won't look good.

ey you should make a small balmachine with instructions with this lift,i'm getting tired of seeing everyone putting lifts on ibls instead of ball machine instructions,
dystopia is awesome

Haha, thanks! But I think I won't make another ible of a hole ball should use your imagination :P

i've played with knex a few years ago,i made some big ball machines back then,how big shall i make them now?

Just do it how you like it :D


haha, that was IMO pretty obvious.

this lifty thing works with the newer balls right?

I don't have newer balls so i didn't try out...

I see you're still coming out with an Ible every week. :-P Nice lift, but you should have cleaned it up a bit (i.e. the open connectors). Lots of that stuff isn't even needed.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-05

Of course i'm coming up with a ible each week :P Did you forget that you talked me into something that made me do it? xD
still have two unpublished ibles and ideas for 20+ ibles (all non-knex realted >:D )

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-05-05

Haha, I didn't know I talked you into that.

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-05

You didn't directly do that, you just talked me into doing something different that gave me the idea of doing that ^^

Shadowman39 (author)Sorunome2012-05-06

What will next week's Ible be?

Sorunome (author)Shadowman392012-05-07

Sorunome (author)jameshond2012-05-05

KneXtreme (author)2012-05-04

I like it because the ball basically sits on the ground.

Sorunome (author)KneXtreme2012-05-04
