Hey there, this is the small knex wheel lift I used in my ball machine Dystopia underneath the white floor.

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

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,
BTW
dystopia is awesome

Haha, thanks! But I think I won't make another ible of a hole ball machine....you should use your imagination :P
ok,
i've played with knex a few years ago,i made some big ball machines back then,how big shall i make them now?
Sorunome (author)  guitarshredder1232 years ago
Just do it how you like it :D
wow.thanks.
Sorunome (author)  guitarshredder1232 years ago
haha, that was IMO pretty obvious.
this lifty thing works with the newer balls right?
Sorunome (author)  guitarshredder1232 years ago
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)  Shadowman392 years ago
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still have two unpublished ibles and ideas for 20+ ibles (all non-knex realted 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 )
Haha, I didn't know I talked you into that.
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman392 years ago
You didn't directly do that, you just talked me into doing something different that gave me the idea of doing that ^^
What will next week's Ible be?
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman392 years ago
Guess :P
Hmmm... Parallel arm lift?
Sorunome (author)  Shadowman392 years ago

I like it because the ball basically sits on the ground.
Sorunome (author)  KneXtreme2 years ago
Haha, thanks!
